What are the pros? color, flavor, hardyness
What are the cons? none
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.

What are the pros? Prolific producer
What are the cons? Absolutely None
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.

What are the pros? Vigorous growers
What are the cons? Strings
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.

What are the pros? Great flavor
What are the cons? Can drop beans in heat.
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 :)
