They had OK flavor, but couldn't compare to Kentucky Wonder poles. The bushes kept producing quite late as long as I kept them picked, so that was a nice surprise. Even the larger beans were tender, not tough and stringy. After being frozen, the cooked beans were mushy, with outer skins sloughing off - not visually appealing.
I have been planting bush green beans for many years and I have grown umpteen different varieties over the years. In past two years I started planting Romano Bush Bean in lieu of standard shaped green beans. I now prefer Romano's over other types. This variety is delicious, vigorous, dependable, bountiful, disease free and fast growing. I recommend this variety. I am growing this variety again in my garden this year
I have always been able to count on these Bush Romanos to be strong producers and deliver excellent flavor. They are also the first garden seeds I use to introduce young children to the benefits and thrills of growing your own food.
I love this bean. I've been growing it for years. The flavor is amazing, rich, buttery - simply delicious steamed. I've found it to be extremely productive in Washington DC.
easy to grow, productive, no diseases so far after several years, fast cooking, delicious
