  • Bean, Roma II Bush is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tasty, productive, foolproof! I planted these on a whim after my peas were finished. I have never had a plant germinate, grow, and produce more quickly than this bean. Every seed germinated and grew well. I've had trouble with pests and disease on beans before, but no trace on these plants. They didn't even attract Japanese Beetles! Produced plenty of meaty beans that were easy to pick. Worked equally well in Italian and Asian recipes. I have so many frozen that I won't need to plant beans next summer. Highly recommended for the beginning/pest-challenged gardener.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best beans ever! I grew 2 short rows of these beans this year and couldn't have been happier. Despite relentless rabbit problems and the fact that my community garden space always ends up surrounded by abandoned gardens where insects and disease run rampant, we had more than enough beans to enjoy at will and also plenty to freeze, and the taste is FABULOUS. These beans are always tender no matter how big they are when you pick them; I will never grow another variety

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! This bean is tops in all areas. Flavor, yield, and it is a heavy produces with no fiber. You can't go wrong with this one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bush Bean Roma II My wife and I have a preference for the Italian Romano Pole Beans because of their robust flavor. We also plant the Bush Bean Roma II for the earlier crop and a second fall crop. This extends our bean season. Flavor of the Roma II is very similar to the Romano and that is the reason we grow the Roma II. At the time of this review, I am placing an order for both the Roma II and the Romano beans.
