A favorite of Southern gardeners! A Campbell Soup Co. variety from 1950. High quality and early 5-6'H plants produce heavy yields of tasty 6- 8"L spineless, dark green, tapered round pods. Best to harvest when 3-4" long for best taste and tenderness. Thrives in HOT temperatures! Excellent variety for soups, stews, gumbos, fried, boiling, canning and freezing.
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
This variety has a history of being passed down within a family or community, similar to the generational sharing of certain items like jewelry or furniture.
