You really can have dinner in a flash when you grow Landreth’s Stringless Bush Beans in the garden. The "stringless" part gives you exactly what you'd expect, a smooth pod that does not require feeding it through a bean Frencher to split. Highly productive, no gardener or cook should be without this high-class bean. Circa 1885.
Plant Information
The Landreth's Stringless Green Pod bush bean is named so because it was invented and introduced by us way back in 1885. The "stringless" part of its name means exactly what you'd expect, that it's smooth and fiberless with no strings attached. Reaching approximately 2 feet in height, Stringless Green Pod bush bean plants are self-supporting and easy to grow in a garden, a raised bed, or containers. They're very quick to mature, making them ideal for short growing seasons like those found in the north. A mature plant will produce quite a heavy harvest of impressive, 6-inch pods. Your beans will be ready to pick about 10 weeks after they're sown. You'll know they're ready because they'll be about as thick as a pencil and their sides will be curvy thanks to all the beans inside. Stringless Green Pod bush beans are great for freezing and canning, steamed or cooked in a favorite recipe, or enjoyed raw as part of a salad or snack. They're rich in antioxidants and extremely high in fiber and flavonoids, helping to reduce the risk of heart disease. They're also an excellent source of vitamins A, C, K, and B6, and folic acid.
