Lovely beans

Germination a little uneven but the plants that grew produced beautiful, large beans.

Average Shelling Bean

I tried the beans for one season. They are a bush variety. My garden has a tendency to produce rust. For pole varieties this is less of an issue but with this bush variety it got hit hard. The beans it produced were very tasty but it just wasn't enough to do with after the rust hit.
