Phaseolus vulgaris Dwarf French Bean 'Opera' is an early maturing Kenyan-type bean which produces heavy crops of slim, dark green 10-12cm (4-5in) stringless pods over a long season. Easy to harvest as the plant has an upright, open habit. Resistant to Halo Blight, Mosaic Virus and Anthracnose, it is the perfect choice for organic gardeners, as Opera has no problems with Botrytis.
