What are the pros? Looks, taste
What are the cons? Purple goes away when cooked
I grew these in the Florida panhandle (Zone 8b). Planted 3/1 in POOR sun--gets about 5 hours direct sun a day), and had my first harvest 4/25 (55 days). Being beans, they pretty much all germinated and grew well. The pods don't have purple on them until they get some size. They're beautiful, and taste great raw or cooked. When cooked they--like pretty much everything else with purple--loses the purple. The pods turn a pale off-white color, but are still very sweet. I grew these adjacent to the very-similar Tongues of Fire beans, and prefer these. They are my favorite bush bean.
