Large, climbing vines are very healthy and productive. Large pods can reach 10" in length and are green with irregular maroon streaking. Dried seeds are large (up to 3/4"), cream to pale tan colored, with dark brown splotches and streaks. Immature beans are very good as a fresh green bean, or can be used for cooking. Pods are easy to spot and pick, and do indeed, when dried, rattle when shaken. An excellent pole bean variety.
