Ratings & Reviews
Great germination rate and very healthy plantsAll the seeds germinated despite hot and occasionaly dry location. All plants are doing great and are about to fruit a few weeks after germination.
Absolutely awesomeI've had great success growing this one in Brisbane. Grows like a weed, easy to collect seed and grow again, taste is excellent if you pick the beans before they get too big. Also I've had success in drying out beans and extracting the seeds inside. As I mentioned it's very easy to save the seed and grow more vines, but I've also had success in sprouting the seeds and eating the sprouts on sandwiches.
