This bean can be eaten early as a fresh snap bean or later in the season as a shelly bean. Being a pole bean, plants are climbers and do need trellising. They heavily produce 8” straight pods that will keep coming until frost. Named in the mid 1880's (hence the antiquated moniker), it was the first bean to be developed that did not require the string to be removed. 75 days to maturity.
