Ratings & Reviews
We planted these beans this year, they were super prolific, and good eating as green beans, as well as dried.
Best Beans and Ham
I tried Ireland Creek Annie beans for the first time in 2019. Very hardy and prolific, produced enough to share with family. My dad says they made the best beans and ham that he has ever had... and he's from Tennessee so he knows about good beans and ham! I just cooked the last of my dried beans so I am reordering for 2021 garden.
A true winner
By far the most productive and best storing bean I have grown!
