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.

What are the pros? Doesn't get tough

What are the cons? None

Review:

I had some issues early on this year with pill bugs eating the new sprouts and had to replant all my beans, which put them behind in production. Once I got that problem under control, however, they shot up and took over my bean trellis. I agree with all the other posters when they say quick, pretty and easy to find purple beans BUT I have something to add: they never got really tough for me. Even large, if I roasted them they were as tender as young beans and my family devoured them every time. That's not to say they never got tough, just that it took them much longer to do so and I had a much larger harvest as a result. I'm not sure I"ll plant any other bean next year...

What are the pros? Pretty purple blossoms & beans

What are the cons? None

Review:

In my years of gardening, I've grown bush beans, beans on poles, fences and teepees with varied results. This year, I grew these beans on cattle panel arches. They quickly germinated and climbed, covering the panels with dense green leaves. Even with a two-week heat wave and an invasion of Japanese beetles eating the blossoms as fast as they appeared, somehow I've ended up with heaps of large, unblemished beans. The purple color makes them so easy to see against the foliage, which means fewer overlooked/wasted beans while picking. Bonus that I can stand to pick the entire time--no more hunching over! I'm amazed that I'm still harvesting a good amount daily even after eating some fresh, freezing plenty and having more than enough to give to friends and family. Will definitely plant these again.

What are the pros? Flowers, easy to grow,

What are the cons? Cook to green

Review:

Beautiful Purple flowers that attract bumblebees, Grew without fuss to at least 5ft tall on a teepee. Huge number of purple beans that are tasty and cook to green. My only problem was that gophers took some down, but that's not the plants fault. Love this and will grow it again and again.

What are the pros? Productive, Beautiful, Tender

What are the cons? None

Review:

I planted about 8 of these seeds and they grew faster than any other beans I've grown. They quickly outgrew the 5ft trellis I gave them, so I attached 6ft poles to the top of the trellis, and then they quickly grew over the top of those, and started folding down and wrapping around themselves. Then they EXPLODED with beans! Literally every day I climb up the ladder and pick a large handful of new beans. They are a beautiful deep purple color and they are so tender you can add them to salads raw, or lightly saute them for a really tasty side dish - even though they are larger, they are much more tender than the Golden Butterwax or the Cantare green beans.

Review:

Every visit to my garden produced baskets full of these beauties. I didn't tend to them much, but that didn't seem to harm them any. The vines are very eager to climb and it's easy to pick due to the rich purple pods catching your eye.
