2019 Holy crap this variety was nuts for me this year (and I thought it was a good grower in 2018!). I had so many beans I didn't know what to do with them. Hot weather, dry weather, sunny, cloudy, chilly, nothing seemed to faze this variety. This will become a staple in my garden, it's absolutely amazing.
2018 Great grower, only had 6 seeds germinate, so most of the plant was reserved for saving seed to send back to Seeds of Diversity. Saved a few for myself and will be growing again in 2019 to beef up my own stock. I let every single pod come to complete maturity on the plant, so I'm unsure about fresh eating date. In 2019 I'll have more data.
