As always, the best! Love all the seeds I get from Pinetree. I love growing unusual varieties and Pinetree never disappoints.
The flavor of the velour beans is more subtle than with ordinary green beans. My husband, who does not like regular beans, has eaten some of these raw and likes them. The beans had almost 100% germination and are beautiful. The "bush" was a surprise for me. Didn't see any info online for how tall the bushes are, and was expecting something in the 2 to 3 foot range. Surprise! Mine are less than a foot tall. The lower beans drag in the soil. However, the beans are so tasty that I don't mind bending double to pick them. The last harvesting-session took a long time because a week and a half of Hazardous air quality had kept me indoors and there were lots of beans.
great producer pinetree has been our source for seeds for many years and always had great results
These plants put out so many beans! They are very colorful.
These beans have done so well in my garden. Germination was well over 80% even after being stored for a year. The beans stay stringless even if you keep forgetting pick them for a week. Great color, great snap, great flavor - nice thin, straight bean pods. It’s fun to watch them turn deep green when they cook. The only con I would give them (if you can even consider it a con) is that they produce so heavily that the plants will start to fall over.
