    Hard-to-Find Beans Were Just as Expected

    Posted by MP on Oct 11th 2016

    These Giant Beans (Φασόλια Γίγαντες) are hard to find and have no substitute. I was very happy with the quality of these beans. The order also shipped quickly. If you buy the 5 lb bag, the price is pretty much comparable to whatever else you could find (so not a bad deal).

    Great seedlings so far

    For the price you get a hefty bag about the size of a soda can. All the beans have started to sprout and the seedlings look good so far. Hope the critters don't nibble on them. Put out 15 seeds and I still have most of the bag left so there are back up seeds available.

    These are really special beans and worth waiting to use versus and alternative for authentic Greek dishes.
