From Bakker Brothers, who offer this description; "New variety in the slicing market. Compared to the well-known Helda with its strong vigour, this variety has less vigour and is therefore more suitable for greenhouse cultivation. Also Terts is about 5 days earlier. The 25 cm long pods are 22 mm wide and have an excellent flavour. Of course this variety is stringless and is also resistant to Bean Common Mosaic Virus. Very productive."
