Re: Pole Beans Versus Bush Beans

I've grown Masai bush beans from Pinetree Seeds for years. I'm in zone 5. They have small, tender, delicious beans, but not as small as haricot verts, and are very prolific. From each plant I can easily pick a dozen or more beans at a time and get at least 3 pickings per season. The plants keep producing until fall. Just be sure to pick them before they start to fill out, because then they get soft and lose flavor.
