  • Bean, Bush, Big Kahuna is rated 4.2222 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good Bean I planted these outside in early spring and they sprout very fast! 3 - 5 days. The first crop of 10 plants gave me a large bowel of beans I picked at about 6". They had a good taste and I ended up eating most of them raw while watching TV over a few days. I had a few more beans grow on these plants about 3 weeks later. I also tried a 2nd and 3rd planting but did not do that well at all. Not sure if it was my not to great soil making the plants weak or the bugs chewing the leaves but they got diseased and I was lucky to get a handful of scrawny beans. I planted 3 in a pot and they met the same fate after a great start. This is only my 2nd year gardening so it's possible I am doing something wrong. I still have enough seeds for next year and will give these a try after improving my soil over the short Santa Monica winter. Loved the taste so I would say they are worth giving a try in your garden.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kahuna Delight The info for your Big Kahuna Bush Beans enticed me to give them a try. My granddaughter and I planted these beans as an "extra"--just to see what they would be like, so they weren't the main bean crop. They will be at least half of that main crop next year! These beans met the description for being "crisp, flavorful, giant," but we did have 2 problems: 1) Letting them grow to their maturity--the temptation to pick them early was huge! AND 2) Getting them into the house to cook--they were delicious right off the vines. We will definitely be planting these Kahunas again...and more of them!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok bean I'm not sure about this bean as this was not a "bean year" for me. However, it did grow nicely and put on quite a few beans. I picked them when they were a normal size as the few I let get big were not what I expect from a bean. I think I will stick to my favorite brands for the main crop. It is fun to experiment with one new variety each year. I won't buy this bean again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Truelly are big produced as advertised with huge beans. However if you let them get too long they get a little woody. Pick before they get 9 inches.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Big Kahuna Strong, very productive plants with large, tender green beans! I planted another green bean, and a wax bean...Big Kahuna is # 1 of the 3 different beans.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big is right. Very productive bush bean with giant beans. Seemed to be able to stand the desert sun and hot temperatures. Excellent flavor and stringless.
