USDA Certified Organic. 42 days. Our all around favorite. [Introduced in 1949 by the SC/AES. Possibly derived from pre-1855 'Early Valentine'] The best early green bean for gardeners who desire a combination of good flavor, disease resistance, and high yields. Has excellent fresh eating quality and is very well liked by our customers. Bears slightly curved thick pods, approximately 5-1/2" long. Fairly hardy under adverse conditions and well suited to solar-greenhouse use because of its earliness, heat tolerance and disease resistance. Resistant to common bean mosaic virus (race 1) and tolerant of powdery mildew. ***Note: 2010 seed lot contains ~10-15% purple-podded off-types. (Purple color fades to green when beans are cooked!)*** Pkt.
