Koala filet beans?

Ispahan Zone6a ChicagoFebruary 7, 2011

Hi all,

Has anyone grown 'Koala' bush beans? Seeds from Italy lists it as a filet bean used by professional growers and states something along the lines of "it is the best bush bean I have ever grown." Sounds intriguing, but I can find very few references to it online.

Thanks,

Corey

They look like some nice beans, they are listed in the Seed Savers Exchange member's only catalog as the following:

"50 days, very tender, stringless, very thin green bean with great flavor, 5" long, very heavy producer"

I might have to add them to my Seed Bucket List.

Do let us know how they do you, if you decide to grow them.

thanks,

Dean
