This stringless bush green bean has been around since 1885.  It grows a little taller (45cm)  than other bush beans, and the production was very good despite the drought and heat wave that saw daytime temps above 45C and 27C nights.  I will grow these again, hopefully  under normal summer conditions and fill the freezer.  Good bean taste. Pods are meaty and are just under 15cm long. Brown seeds.
