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.

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.

What are the pros? beautiful color

What are the cons? none

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.

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.

What are the pros? Color makes them easy to see!

What are the cons? None

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.
