Tricia, welcome to the Forum. Just as a thought, generally speaking, certainly in the Restaurant trade, the "french filet" beans are considered to be the best. Straight, pencil round, and very, very tasty. If you are growing in containers, I would certainly recommend growing the best quality around. Here are some French Filet beans, available almost anywhere: "Maxibel" (green), "Borsalino" (yellow). Now I just noticed, that West Coast Seeds is offering "Mascotte", a green bean , AAS winner, particularly suited for Container/window box growing! If there is a fence/tree/structure in full sun anywhere near you, free from deer, you could put in two or three "Carminat" purple pole beans. They turn dark green when cooked. Just exceptionally tender, tasty, and never get "old" on the vine. And you don't have to bend over to pick them or have trouble finding them. Go for it, and good luck!
