description for "Beans: Phaseolus vulgaris 'Musica'"

Juicy, sweet and meaty with wonderful crunchy texture, 'Musica' is an early, and productive pole bean. The broad, flat, 7- to 9-inch long pods have slightly scalloped edges and unsurpassed rich flavor. Bred for demanding fresh markets in Spain and France, 'Musica's' vigorous, robust vines climb quickly and effortlessly to bear extraordinary harvests. Keep these plump, great tasting pods picked, and plants will pump out more beans than you thought possible. ‘Musica’s strong vines are heavy bearers, so plan to harvest often. The more you pick, the more plants will produce. Harvest when beans are broad and 7 to 9 inches long. Slice in pieces and cook just until tender to enjoy their fine flavor and meaty texture. Serve hot or cool and toss with herbed vinaigrette for a delicious green bean salad. – edited by dtd pbcouchman
