Rarely offered and almost extinct, SSE was able to reintroduce Sultan's Golden Crescent Bean. We were highly pleased to find this delightful gem. The snap beans were distinctly curved, prolific, and very easy to see when harvesting from the vines. The stringless pods have excellent flavor and quickly became one of our all time favorite beans to grow.
