Shipped promptly and came well-packaged. They are waiting for me to recuperate from a recent surgery....but have no doubt these will be just great!
The seeds are coming up but at an uneven germination rate. This is just an observational comment, as many things can affect the germination rate. However I would still recommend Pinetree seeds because I purchased other seeds and plants and they are doing great.
I havn’t planted these yet but they look like good seeds...none were cracked. I was impressed and happy that this company carried red swan bean seed because it is rare and often expensive. I paid a fair price, the shipping was quick, and the seed packets were very nice. I am very excited to have these again because they are the star of the garden when it comes to bean varieties.
I am giving these beans five stars for beauty. They were stunning. Even more vibrant than the photo. I wish that they kept their color when cooked. Or I wish that I liked eating beans raw, but I don't. They were crisp. Flavor wise they tasted fine, but there are other beans that I like more. But I will probably grow them again for their beauty.
