A substitute for "Etna" shell bean

Hey Zeeman , ( or anybody else).

I was talking to you earlier on about a substitute for "Etna" shell beans.

Do you have an opinion about " Dwarf Horticultural Taylor" :

I tried these this (last) year and got the best shell bean crop I've had in at least 5 years.

I tried them in two different locations , eastern okla ( more flooding rains) where they did very good and in central okla ( less rain) where they failed.

( this was after a 6 inch rain around May 2022)

I've tried " Lina Sisco's Bird Egg " , Flambo and Supremo but had poor results.

Don't know if it's the variety or the weather conditions....
