One of our favorites, Fortex can grow to be 12" long or even more and become quite thick, however, even the plumpest of the lot rivals any filet bean in terms of tenderness. Not the prettiest of beans but it can't be beat in terms of flavor. Had problems with deer so they need protecting but very well worth the effort. Will always make room in the garden for them!
Grew these for the first time and was amazed!! Long ten inch beans that taste amazing! Should have had better supports, but they are on a wire fencing and are trailing along the top of the fence. Any higher and I wouldn't be able to pick them. Planted in June and getting a harvest now in August. Will definately grow again.
Unfortunately the only surprise was the meager number of seeds in the package. Based on the estimate I expected twice as many seeds as I got. I doubt if there were 20 seeds in the package.
Hi Gene, I apologize that you received a short packet of seeds. I would be happy to send you another packet if you would like or I would be happy to provide a refund or credit, whichever you prefer. Please let me know what I can do for you.
Grew fortex beans two years ago with great success--good yield, fine taste. However, this year they were very slow to germinate, and are less vigorous than other pole beans I'm growing. No beans yet, so maybe they'll come through for me eventually.
Th beans I bought are growing as they should, although not as vigorously as I would like, but that is due to location and not the bean. They was a high germination rate on the seeds, but my garden doesn't currently get enough sun . I would certainly buy from this company again.
