Just got a package of seed in today. I'm still trialing different varieties of "flat beans" aka romano types. The missus wasn't sold on Romas last year or Romano the year before or Jeminez the year before (I wasn't sold on the difficulty I had growing it either). We've pretty much decided on a bush variety and this year I googled what others were talking about as a good tasting bean and this one came up so what the H I ordered the seed.
So what should I expect.
