Bean, Fortex

A bigger and tastier French bean.
Extraordinaire! A French bean that's bigger and tastier—a new classic. A gourmet's delight, this stringless French variety is everything you wish for in a bean: tender, green, mildly sweet, nutty, meaty, savory. Wildly popular in France (the French know beans), you can pick them from 6 up to 11". Vigorous growth requires sturdy stakes.
