Several years ago, a neighbor at the dacha recommended Laura, a variety of asparagus beans, and said that I would eat and remember with a kind word. And indeed it is! Now every year I plant only her, and every time I remember him. She is very good. A large harvest from a small plot, and the taste is simply delicious.

I am not a very experienced gardener. But this variety of Laura beans just amazed me with its yield! I cooked and stewed beans, and added different kinds to salads. The taste is simply excellent. She treated all her friends, even closed several jars for the winter. When people ask me if I will now plant this variety in smaller quantities, I say with full confidence that no! There should be a lot of such good! Laura beans are both tasty and healthy, and if you know that you have grown them yourself, without any chemicals, then eating is twice as pleasant!

I am engaged in entrepreneurship. I rent a lot of land. I have been planting Laura beans for a long time. Gives a high yield. She does not get sick, she does not need to tie her up, and the demand for it will never disappear. A dream for an agronomist. Has excellent qualities for storage and transportation, even over long distances. I'm never afraid that I won't be able to sell. It leaves quickly, and buyers have no indignation. Make big orders for next year in advance. I advise everyone!
