Heritage Beans ? Bountiful

Previously known as Green Bush Bean #1 the name "Bountiful" was chosen in a contest in 1897. First prize was $25.00 (a considerable amount at the time).

This popular green bean produces abundant yields of excellent quality, stringless pods 6-7 inches long an bush plants that grow 16" tall. For highest quality and yield, pick pods when young (4-5 inches long).

Germinates in 6-10 days depending on soil and temperature conditions.
