Several outstanding stringbean varieties were among the attractions during the field day at the experimental farm of Allied Botanical Corporation in Brgy. Lichauco, Tayug, Pangasinan on February 21, 2013.
These include the 4-Star variety which produces 3 to 4 pods per peduncle, each pod about 60 cm; Tristar which is very high yielding, producing 2 to 3 pods per peduncle; Negrostar which produces dark green pods well liked in the Ilocos and Central Luzon, Greenstar which produces smooth apple green pods; and Maranaw which produces light green tender pods.
