This vigorous, 7' tall variety made Oregon's Willamette Valley famous in the 60s and 70s for canning beans. The smooth, 6-7"green pods have a straight, yet plump shape. Harvested at their peak, you'll find them tender, meaty, and full of hearty, fresh bean flavor.
Mascotte French Filet
Bush-type haricot vert with dense but shallow roots and stringless beans that sit right on the top of the foliage, for easy picking. Generous crop of 5- to 6-inch pods, just ¼-inch in diameter but packed with rich, succulent flavor and crunchy texture.
Pole Type, Greasy Variety
One of the largest of all the greasy varieties. Thick, fleshy, and stringless, pods remain tender until the beans are quite large. A great shelling bean as well.
Pole beans are a space saving wonder for the compact garden. The long vines take advantage of vertical space and have a continual harvest throughout the growing season, so they have higher yields per square foot than bush beans. For many people, the flavor is beyond compare as well.
Violet’s Multicolored Butterbeans
A rainbow of colors – cream, beige, red-brown, and violet-purple, with speckles and swirls. Small seeds have great flavor, good both fresh or dried. 3-5” pods. Semi-bush plants have good disease and drought resistance. Saved by 4 generations of Violet Brady Westbrook’s family in Banks County, Georgia.
One of the best quality French filet bean variety on the market with pods 7" long and straight. Good yield. Disease resistance to Anthracnose and Bean Common Mosaic Viruses.
