While no bush bean is continuous, a few that work fairly well up here are Dragon's Tongue and Fin de Bagnol. There is also a trick of pruning plants after the initial harvest to quicken regrowth.

A bush bean that produces for a long time is Commodore (Bush Kentucky Wonder, brown seeded). The pods are dark green and have a stronger flavor that the newer varieties. I like them. I cook them a few minutes longer than the newer types to get them tender.

I guess I'm not sure if a pole bean is okay with you. Blue lake pole bean produces until we get tired of them. Very long season. Very tender, too.
