    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tasting bean...but These beans taste fantastic and are generally easy to grow. I have grown them for five years now. Germination is a bit "iffy" at times and I do have to replant when some don't come up. I have started them indoors and transplanted, and started them directly outdoors, both with great success and heavy yields. This year a very strange thing happened. Two of the plants produced a pole type bean that climbed the greenhouse cover support. The leaves are a lighter green and the beans are very different on those two plants. (see picture) I would think there was a seed mix up in packaging, but the beans taste terrible from these two plants and I can't imagine anyone eating them. They are woody and stringy with very little flavor at all. I will grow these again next year because of the great flavor of these and hope I don;t get any more climbers. Going to try another variety as well. Tried Beananza in the past and didn't care for the flavor as well, but love Maxibel, so maybe try those again. (Burpee doesn't carry them.)

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible! We planted these beans 2 different times in 2 types of soil and didn't get 1 bean to grow. The 3rd time we tried soaking the beans first to help with germination, but nothing. Not 1 bean plant. We went back to a different brand.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from They are OK Plants are very compact. Continuing to produce a great amount of beans for their size. These beans had a problem sprouting. They germinated, but many came out bare or with ragged leaves. Many did eventually go on to thrive, though. The beans are not at all tender like described (at any size) but are instead crisp and crunchy. Stringless but kind of typical taste. They are quite long.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible germination I grow 5 crops of beans a year. This was my favorite the past 2 years. However, this year, the seed is a COMPLETE germination failure. I have sowed 3 times, from 2 different packets, and wasted several weeks, and have to say, in 30 years, I have never seen a germination failure so profound. Out of 200-250 seeds, 5 came up. I don't know what the deal was, but I will be writing for a refund. Heavyweight II, on the other hand, which I have had some germination problems with in the past, did quite well this year.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from too much of a good thing Whoever said these beans weren't prolific wasn't slaving in my garden this summer! I had enough of these beauties (soooo good and soooo tender!) to freeze, share and give this old back a run for it's money. Also, with the late growing season, everyone I ran in to was surprised I was already getting beans. The other day I thought my plants were about done as the picking was slowing up but now I see more blossoms appearing so the peas (2nd crop) will have to wait! I'll buy them again next year as always enjoy something a little different than what the supermarket offers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummy Beans! I've grown this variety both hydroponically and in raised beds. They are so tasty and have a nice snap to them - great variety to enjoy raw. They gave me beans in only 45 days in a deep water culture hydroponics system. I will definitely buy again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy for me to grow I frequently have cool springs, and I also container garden due to deer and lack of a place for a fenced garden. I started these indoors in mid-April in a warm room with grow lights. I got about 70% germination. I then put the plants outside May 1, in large containers under a popup greenhouse. I took the greenhouse off the first week of June, mainly because the plants were too big for the greenhouse. The plants are loaded with small beans and I will be able to pick a couple this weekend! It's my first year with these and I will do them again, as they seem to be a great success. Traditionally we like to freeze a lot of beans for year long eating. I also planted the Beananza variety and Fortex Pole beans. We will see what produces the most!
