As much fun to grow as they are to eat! These slim green beans can grow up to 3’ (1m) long, however, they are most flavorful and tender if picked when 12-18” (30-45cm). This bean is not in the same family as the standard green bean but is prepared and used the same.

Distinctive rose-pink flowers resemble little turtle heads with open mouths. Dense, lustrous foliage looks good all season long. This unique selection is sure to attract attention.
