The Taylor Horticultural Cranberry green bean is one of the striking green beans we carry. The pods are a cranberry color with streaks of white running though them. These will need support; grow like you would any pole bean. The Taylor Horticultural bean will start producing in about sixty days and are best when eaten fresh. But some folks like these in the dry mature state. Either way, these are a great Heirloom that has not not had the goodness bred out of it. A wonderful addition to any line up--large, small, or medium! Happy growing!!!
