What variety would/could this be?

Probably a long shot dumb question, but at least take an educated guess if you have one.

Very delicious, crisp & sweet eaten raw, like a Sugar Snap pea or Purple Asparagus.

They will be one of the commercial blue lake bush bean types.

You can grow something similar with Festina or most any of the straight pod bush blue lake types.

RE: What variety would/could this be?

Bingo. I called the company and gave them the information on the packaging and the lady told me someone would call me back and tell me what variety of bean it was; and you know what? Someone actually called me back and told what variety of bean it was!!! And you're right, it was a Blue Lake bush bean!

Which blows my mind, many years ago we grew Blue Lake pole beans and simply did not care for the 'canned cafeteria bean' taste of them. Oh well, stranger things have happened.
