What are the pros? Color and Taste
What are the cons? N/A
I love these bean when they are a little older... Unlike most bean where you want to eat them young and tender I found these Dragon Tongue less then tasty young; but let them get some size to them about the size when you would no longer find string beans edible is the time these shine sweet and tender they earned a space in my garden. just let them get a little bigger then regular sting beans.

What are the pros? Easy, prolific
What are the cons? bland
These grew well here, were easy, and virtually pest free. Very pretty and unique. Both my good friend (with heavy soil) and I (sandy loam) found them to be just ok in flavor. Im planting more this year because due to their appearance,they do well at market. However, flavor-wise, I cant see what all the raves are about.

What are the pros? heavy yield, pleasant taste
What are the cons? none
I bought this bean initially because my nine year old daughter thought it looked "cool". It was fast growing, each plant produced well and I was able to cook enough for a family of five at least once a week, and the mild flavor went over well with all of the kids. The kids also thought it was "magic" to watch the beans turn from purple to green as they were steamed. The beans dried easily to preserve for replanting so we'll have them in the garden again this year.

this bean is awesome. ive found it a few different places but prefer to buy it from baker creek because its a good cause. my son calls these tiger beans and loves to pick them right off the plant when hes out in the yard and eat them. my nieces and nephews love them too. they look so cool the kids eat them like candy. in phoenix they don't do very well going into the spring unless you shade them (can't handle direct sunlight over 95). they do great going into the winter and make it usually till about december unless we get an early freeze.
