Rockwell Bean


This was a fun and easy bean to grow in the garden.  A compact bush bean that generously give 4-5″ pods filled with delicious red and white beans.  They do not take up a lot of space in the garden and can be grown close together as they do not spread too much in diameter.  Looking forward to growing out more next year.
