Early maturing plants keep pumping out 6”, deep-green, slender beans for weeks on end. Glossy and attractive with thin skins and a crisp, juicy texture. The plant habit is remarkable upright, holding the beans off the ground for easy, clean picking. Delightful eaten fresh, steamed or stir-fried. We’ve got to meet this guy Lewis. Our hero!
