56 days. Won the coveted AAS Award in 1990 and was viewed as the greatest bush bean ever! But the breeder, to prevent its unintended grow-out, placed it under a patent that was sold to a French firm with no interest in this American icon. The patent expired, so we can all enjoy these straight, round, 7-in., deep green pods growing so slowly to stay stringless and extra tender. Huge yields from an open, 18-in. habit that allows for easy harvest. But the flavor? That old-timey, succulent, ‘beany’ taste found only when home grown. Versatile. Superb virus resistance. White seeds.
