Amazingly vigorous and prolific

I’ve grown this bean the past two years and its vigorous growth and prolific production outshines every other bean I’ve grown. I only have a small area for beans, but my first year harvested close to 8 pounds of beans. I did not intend to grow them this year (still eating the previous harvest!) and planted Purple Kingsessing pole beans. Sawaroame volunteered and produced 4 pounds, crowding out the purple Kingsessing. I live in north eastern MD (zone 7a) and sawaroame has enough time to mature. Much further north and frost will likely hit before they can mature. They are definitely a late maturing variety. When cooked, they are delicious and creamy. Definitely give this bean a try!
