57 days. Our exclusive variety will put a smile on your face as you harvest huge meaty pods, up to 9 in. long, all summer. Stringless and straight at any size, these beans have a tender crisp texture and old-fashioned green bean flavor. They outyield every other variety in our trials and hold well on the plant, giving you plenty of time to harvest. Vigorous upright plants don't require staking and are resistant to BCMV and Anthracnose—ensuring more than enough beans for fresh eating, canning and freezing.
2-oz. packet contains about 150 seeds; sows a 25-ft. row.
Note: Plants will ship in Spring.
While the yields did live up to the hype, I was quite disappointed in the quality of the beans. The plants were loaded with beans and they were as long as advertised but they never got bigger than a a small drinking straw! Definitely not the nice big "meaty" beans I get with my Top Crops. I'm going back to that good old standard that has served my family for generations.
I grow different varieties of beans and this is the best for eating and making dilly beans.
This is the best bean I have ever grown. Next year, it will be the only one I grow. The beans are long, tender, and tasty. The bushes are big and bountiful. My husband only likes young beans that are tender, but will eat these full grown as they are never tough.
I tried this bean for the first time last year and it was by far the best of the varieties we planted. It was stringless , tender and flavorful. The winner by far. Now my favorite. Ordering more for this year
If I had realized how tall the plants would get, I'd have put each one in a tomato cage, I kid you not. These bear tons of beans all season, and they need a little more room than a typical bush bean and will get about twice as tall. These are a "forever" choice in our home garden!
Love these beans! Will never go another summer without them. (My other fave is Provider.) One note to small-space gardeners like me, who plant very closely: THIS is a bush bean that gets BIG and very bushy. Next summer, I'm using tomato cages for these and giving each plant more space.
We have been vegetable gardening for years, but last year was the first time we tried this variety. It is by far THE best we've ever grown! And this was from a year where we had severe drought and heat. Yet they flourished, were so long and plentiful and very tasty. I froze some of the crop too. Very happy to find this variety!
I got excited when I saw the numerous clusters of long slender green beans. On my first picking from a 3'x3' above ground planter boxes, I got over a one-half gal., and I'm sure I will have that many tomorrow. They should be called Grinnin' while Pickin'. This will be my favorite from now on.
We absolutely endorse your Pickin' & Grinnin' green beans1 I've grown them the past two summers! We've never had a better bean! Long pods, slender, string less, flavorful; fresh, canned, or frozen works very well!
My husband and I try 3 or 4 varieties of green beans every year. But not again since I purchased Pickin & Grinnin last year.We would race to the garden to get to pick that row!! Sturdy plants you pick by the handfuls.. Thanks Henry!!
