Dark Green
Disease Reaction:

Produces long, straight pods with distinctive color, tender 

texture and sweet flavor. Pods are smooth, shiny and without 

fuzz. Its upright bush holds the pods above the ground, 

reducing the likelihood of curling and tip rot. Less concentrated 

set for multiple harvests. Best suited for hand pick.

    Jade Bean

    Posted by Tanya Gabriele on Sep 22nd 2020

    It's an excellent Fall bean that can persevere when other more productive varieties would falter due to shorter days and waning rates of rainfall. This is particularly true in the northeastern region of Ohio . The pods are long, tender and straight and are visually appealing in any dish. When thawed after being stored in the freezer, they still hold their fresh from the garden quality. I rate this bean a 4 instead of a 5 only because it doesn't produce as many pods as a variety such as Strike, but then--like I said--that other variety would fail to do as well under the conditions that Jade can grow. Jade remains, one of my two favorite beans. My customers love them too!
