    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummy Beans! This is my first time gardening and this was my first plant. 100% germination, rapid growth and super tasting beans. I couldn't get over the great "bean" flavor. You can't get that flavor from a grocery store- it was just amazing! My husband was also impressed, green beans are his favorite veggie. So far, disease-free and with all the blossoms on the plants, I'm sure the harvesting will continue for awhile. We've had an exceptionally hot spring here and the plants seem happy, so far. To the review asking about containers: I have them planted in a raised bed, so I'm sure they would work in a container if it is big enough. Also, check out Burpee Backyard. It's a forum where you can ask your gardening questions.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from question about container I purchased a packet of these seeds and the packet has a picture of a pot and a check mark in it. Does that mean these can be grown in containers? and if so, how big /deep should the container be? i'm a very new gardener (this is my first time trying from seeds!) i started the seeds in a burpee seed tray and they TOOK OFF they are all about 6 inches tall already! its still pretty chilly here and i'm not ready to put them in the ground. I would like to grow them in containers if possible. IS this possible? what size containers? thanks!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Bean!! Out of about 50 beans planted, only three sprouted, but it could have been our resident squirrel who dug them up, not sure. What plants did sprout, produced lots of delicious, huge beans! Would defiitely buy again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long lasting and prolific I planted these shortly after the last frost date. About 85% germination. Nice bushy plants. These beans have been producing stringless beans since May. This is mid July and they are still blooming. We have had high 80's to mid 90 degree days during June and the plants kept on going. Around mid August, if these plants will ever die out, I plan to plant the second crop. The beans are excellent tasting.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not as productive as some, but great taste I live in Bremen, GA, which is NE GA. I think the summer may have been too hot for this bean. They germinated well, produced fairly well, but I only canned 23 quarts and ate fresh twice (total probably 25 quarts) out of 40 row feet. Only had 2 big harvests, then the plants were done. But the flavor was exceptional, and has held up well after canning, so I would recommend this bean to anyone north of GA, or in the mountains, as long as your summer doesn't get too hot for too long.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Good Choice for the Beginning Gardener Incredibly easy to grow, very tasty, extremely high yielding bush bean. The color is white to medium green. Seedlings emerge in only 4-5 days. Only problems are that Japanese beetles LOVE to eat their leaves and it's not very tolerant to summer heat. Would not recommend to anyone south of the Mason-Dixon line.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tasty and Easy...I love 'em! Everyone always said to grow bush beans because they are easy, fun and fast but until this year I never had since prices for them remained low in the stores. This year I took the plunge and planted 6 different varieties, this one being my primary crop plant. This bean germinates like a champ and grows exceptionally well with little work by me. Since I use Square Foot Gardening, my beans are planted 9 to a square foot and I did notice a little cramping after the second round of harvesting as the plants took on more size, but even then, they produced well. My bean size wasn't as large as other reviewers indicate, probably because of the close spacing in SFG and I'll adjust that next year as a test. The flavor is wonderful and more like a pole bean for that great green bean taste. Easy to harvest completely and keep the plant productive. These beans canned very well also.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality beans All of my beans came up this year, which is unusual. The plants have resisted the usual rust, mildew, etc. They are huge with tons of blossoms and beans. I've planted a second planting for the fall, but I don't know if I will need it! They taste great and are easy to clean and prepare.
