Blauhilde Bean

Spectacular climbing type makes enormous purple pods! Pods stay tender and stringless, even at 10 inches long! Plants are gorgeous in the garden as well, with the rose-purple of the blooms contrasting nicely with the rich, deep purple of the developing pods. Vigorous, productive vines reach a moderate 9 feet in height. The richly-flavored pods are best appreciated when used fresh off the vines. This heirloom from Germany is tolerant to mosaic virus, too.

This is our favorite pole bean every year. Great tender pods perfect for salads, steamed, or even left on the plant to dry for soup. Heavy yields.

Review:

My friend grew these in her garden and trellised them on a 6-ft fence. Too short. Needed 7-ft fence. Color makes them easy to see for picking! Nice bean flavor. The origal seed stock came from BAKER CREEK. Seeds are mow being shared with garden club members.

What are the pros? Very productive, attractive

What are the cons? Does not like heat

Review:

These are great pole beans. Strong climbers, easily topping a 7' trellis. Noticed that they looked like they were dying off during the hottest month of summer, but bounced back when it cooled off a little. Second sowing producing now. Will see if they handle a light frost this winter.

What are the pros? Color, flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

These beans are just beautiful - I do wish that they stayed purple when cooked, but I just consider it a fool proof way to cook them: they turn green when they're done! The plants are lovely with purple vines and deep green foliage. The young beans are my favorite. I eat them raw. They do develop strings when quite large, but that doesn't bother me. My favorite bean is still the dragon tongue, but these are a nice pole bean. My mom prefers these to all other beans so I will grow them every year :)

Review:

I love these beans. I got them to go in our 3 sisters garden this year, but the volunteer pumpkins took over; but the beans never threw in the towel. They just climb all over the pumpkins. Around the edges of the garden these beans have had a chance to grow up the poles that we use for spacing. This has made life easier for me because I don't have to dig around to enjoy a few. And once they get going, they just keep going. I don't know how they cook up yet, because these are usually my chore snack. lol. The I love the striking purple colors. The flowers, the pod, the stem, all purple. I love them so much that next year I am going to try something fun, making them a focal point, not just a sister.
