The first AAS winning bean since 1991, this compact variety is perfect for todays small-space gardens. Mascotte is a bush type bean that produces long, slender stringless pods that stay above the foliage for easy harvest. Showy white flowers add ornamental value along with tasty, crunchy beans that provide a plentiful harvest all season long. The Mascotte root system is ideal for patio containers and window boxes, and this versatile variety performs well in garden beds too. The 5-6 inch pods are super-slender at just ¼-inch diameter, yet packed with rich flavor and crunchy texture and are produced over a long season. Excellent straight from the plant, raw in salads, or cooked in any of your favorite dishes. This award-winner is also resistant to many diseases that plague other varieties.
