The first bean to win an All-America Selection in more than 25 years, Mascotte is exceptional in every way. This French Filet Bean is a dwarf, bush-habit variety just right for containers as well as the garden. It offers stringless, slender, crunchy beans packed with flavor and nutritiion. Talk about a win-win!

Mascotte is a haricot vert with vigorous, dense, but very shallow roots. This means that unlike most other beans, it can grow quite happily in tall flowerpots, garden tubs, and windowboxes. Of course, it's also content in the garden. In any sunny, well-drained spot, expect it to reach about 16 to 18 inches high and 8 to 10 inches wide.

This charmer also beguiles with unusually large, abundant white flowers in springtime. All beans bloom, but Mascotte is particularly striking with large flowers on compact stems. Just one more ornamental touch to win your heart!

Best of all, the beans are stringless and set right on top of the leaves, for easy picking! The 5- to 6-inch pods are super-slender at just ¼-inch diameter, yet packed with rich flavor and crunchy texture. They arise profusely over a long season. Eat 'em straight from the plant, raw in salads, or cooked in any of your favorite dishes!

This award-winner is also resistant to many diseases that plague other varieties. Bean common mosaic virus, anthracnose, and halo blight are no issue for Mascotte! So even if you're a first-time bean grower, you can be successful with vey little effort!

Direct-sow the seeds in spring when the soil has warmed, sprinkling a little Nature's Aid inoculant along with it. When the last bean is picked, be sure to plow the plant back into the soil. As a legume, Mascotte is a valuable source of nutrition for your soil. It keeps giving even after the beans have harvested! You simply can't go wrong with this exciting new French Filet Bean!
