As a High School summer job I worked for some local Amish farmers. My grandfather lived close to them as well.
The contender green bean was the favorite of the Amish women.
they are stringless and produce the best green bean I have ever cultivated. I have gardened fort over 50 years.
At present we are having 95 days and the beans are doing well. I water every other day early in the a.m. I pick when they are 6" long and very tender.
I love German style beans. Bacon, sugar, vinegar and boiled eggs. A one dish meal.

You have a lot of luscious-looking seeds. My garden (in San Diego) came with a large population of root-knot nematodes and a variable population of dagger nematodes. I've noticed none of the seed companies mentions nematode resistance very often; it seems to be in bad taste, like talking about STDs! If you had info on nematode resistance in various heirloom tomato varieties, for example, I'd love you and recommend you to everyone I know. Do you have any recommendations?
