I used to get bush green beans that were called Eagles and they quit selling them locally and I haven't been able to find them since.  They would get to be 9 inches long and still crisp and crunchy and straight and stringless for the most part if I remember correctly.  Two good pickings about a week or 10 days apart.  The store said the producer quit growing them.  I have no idea.  They were good while they lasted, though. 

Anybody know where to get them today?  Generally, not right now today... :-)

Not exactly.  That's soy beans for food plots for attracting deer.  What I'm referring to is a variety of green bean called Eagle, like Contender or Roma or Blue Lake.  The guy at the feed & seed store said they're not grown any more.  But I never know if they're serious or if they just want to get on with the next customer.

Compost Guy,
This website is all about beans.  Halfway down the page was the Eagle Bean.

http://cuke.hort.ncsu.edu/cucurbit/wehner/vegcult/beangrnal.html

Eagle (XP B13) - Breeder and vendor: Asgrow Seed Co. Parentage: Roundup x BBL 274. Characteristics: unique, slender podded Tendercrop type; high production; long pods with low fiber; and slow seed development. Resistance: bean virus 1, New York 15. Similar: Tenderette. Adaptation: general. Asgrow Desc. Catalog 1971. PVP. 1972.

So then I looked up the seed company for you.  Hope this helps and is the correct one.

On Sharons link,  it says Derby is similar to Eagle.  Derby is commonly available.  The seed companies keep coming out with supposedly new and improved varieties and drop the older ones.  Sometimes it's true and sometimes it's just hype.

I used to grow Eagle seeds too.  I spoke to my local Southern States owner and he said that they stopped producing them because of lack of interest and too much backstock.  I tried the Derby last year and found them very similar to the Eagle seed, maybe even a little better!
