About Fortex

60–70 days. Pole bean with exceptionally long, round, stringless pods with dark brown seeds. Harvest at 6–7” for especially slender beans, or let grow to their full 11” length. Tender with excellent sweet flavor, delicious right off the vine. If you must, steam or sauté for just a minute, then enjoy. A great pickling bean.

Limited availability.
