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.
