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.

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.

Review:

I've pulled about thirteen pounds off one plant. I'm in Prince Edward Island, Canada, and we have cooler summers, but this year was a tad warmer. The vines are over eight feet. I am now saving seed for next year.

Review:

Growing this bean on an arch in my yard, the plants are gorgeous and vigorous, they're to the top of my cattle panel arch, and reaching to go higher, at least 8' if not 9' tall. It's been an unusually wet year, and cooler than usual, and the beans are doing very well. The larger pods are a little tougher than the smaller ones, but still quite edible - the pods are not stringless for me, but that could be the odd weather, and they're not hard to string while processing. These definitely have a place in my garden, not quite as productive as the Purple Podded Pole, but the pods are more tender even when large.

Some of the best tasting beans I've ever grown! Fairly early here, and has done fairly good with plenty of 100 degree days. Will grow again :)
