Berta Talaska Pole Beans
Grew these for the first time this year, had our first taste tonight. This Portuguese heirloom was brought to Canada over 50 years ago by Berta Talaska. It's an all purpose bean used as a snap, shelly or dried. I steamed a few for dinner tonight and found them to be a very tender even those not quite at the full bean stage, these are also stringless.
Dick I think you have grown these, have you tried them as a full bean?
