My family has grown Bountiful Gardens Rattle Snake Green Beans for over three years at our homestead in Central Coast California. It tolerates our HOT summers, is extremely productive, producing loads of beautiful tasty better flavor than blue lake for a long season.

I recommend this bean in Kansas, great producer
on 11/15/14 by Steve in KS

I planted a 10 foot trellis row with a soaker hose at the base and now have pounds of beans vacuum packed and in the freezer. Gave sacks of them to family and friends. I did have to spray for beetles on regular basis but these beans really produced. My trellis was only 4 feet tall should have been 6 feet tall at least. Favorite recipe, fry four strips of bacon, fry a small onion in the bacon grease, mix crumbled bacon and fried onions with the amount of beans you want and bake to cook beans, stir occasionally till beans are done.

Great Bean for Southern California Inland
on 08/08/14 by James McNulty in CA

I have tried a bunch of different poling green beans and all produced. However, none produced like this bean. I live in the Corona/Lake Elsinore area in Riverside County and we get plenty of 100 plus days and 90+ days are a summer norm. Not having much room to garden, I planted 6 seeds in each of 6 large cat litter buckets from Costco. I ripped 2X4s into 8 foot stakes and wired a tent like structure over the buckets. I had so many green beans from those 6 buckets that I even canned about 24 pints in addition to those my wife and I ate. They produced from spring to fall. If you are short, you will need a stool or ladder to pick these as they want to grow higher than 8 feet. I do not know if they are listed as a container plant, but if you have big buckets, and can make in put up some kind of trellis or support, you will have repeated pickings every few days. If you miss a few, an you will, shell and save for dry beans. If you live in a hot climate, do not waste your time with other varieties and go straight to the Rattlesnake Green Pole Bean

When Spring planted, it has done better than other varieties in my hot and very dry climate no snap bean can survive our summers. Tastes great as well.
