Was not sure what these were going to be like, and these Ayşe Kadin Fasulye are nothing at all like European bred snap beans. They remind me of Appalachian beans. They are very much like greasy beans, maybe not as shiny, but very similar hulls. You let them get real bumpy with beans, string them, cook them for a while. Very beany, not mushy. Grow in bunches, close to 4" long with a curve. Seem to produce quicker than my greasy beans, which usually wait until late Summer.
