Bean (Bush Snap) – Lewis


Packet (~65 seeds)


Lewis bush bean has early maturing plants that keep pumping out 6”, deep-green, slender beans for weeks on end. Lewis bush beans are attractively glossy with thin skins and a crisp, juicy texture. The plant habit is remarkably 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!
