Bean, Fortex

Fortex Bean

A “must have” for CSA’s and farm stands, Fortex’s stringless pods are delicious at lengths from 7-11″, even after the seeds have enlarged. For gardens short on space, it is a great vertical option. Dark green, early, and very productive with a long growing season. Walnut brown seeds. This is our favorite pole bean.
Lots of bang (bean) for the buck. Contains 15 seeds

90 days to dried beans.  Heirloom pole bean.  This vigorous climber gets off to a speedy start and finishes early.  It has edible and string-less pods that produce beautiful egg shaped beans that are great in soups and as re-fried beans.  They remind me of the brown and white markings on those beautiful Jersey/Holstein cows.  I think they are the most beautiful bean I have grown, I love shelling them.  Contains 15 seeds harvested here at the Test Garden.
