Known for its vigor and adaptability to southern states. Good quality when picked on the young side. Use as a snap bean or let it mature to a shell bean. Has a crisp texture. The sound it makes as it is broken for processing lives up to the name “snap” bean! Highly productive and drought resistant. 65 DAYS.
