What are the pros? Germinated quickly

What are the cons? Does not like hot temps

Review:

I planted about 4-5 seeds around each pole of a 4-pole bean tipi in late April. We had unseasonable 100 degree temperatures in central California in early June, which scorched a whole bunch of the young leaves...and the flowers just fell off (I don't blame them). The weather cooled off quickly, but it took a while for the plants to recover, grow, and flower again. There was a small harvest in mid-June, but then it got super hot again. I don't think this bean likes the heat...I'm guessing over 95 degrees? They have only produced a few beans here and there since the first harvest. They seem to be growing, though slowly, they look healthy, but have very few flowers. The leaves aren't scorching as they did in the beginning. But it's just going to get hotter...I would recommend this item to a friend in a cooler climate, that's for sure.

Review:

Grew these for the first time this year (spring 2015) and so glad I did. Chose them for the unique markings hoping to spark some "veggie interest" in my 7 year old daughter. She and I both love the color and markings on these beans. Only disappointment is that the purple markings fade when cooked, but the beans are still a pale yellowish-green and look great when cooked with Calima's or other green varieties. Beans are great size and purple markings appear closer to maturity. Excellent producer and excellent taste. Will definitely grow these again!

What are the pros? Looks, taste

What are the cons? Purple goes away when cooked

Review:

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.

Review:

HUGE yields of great-tasting beans, and HUGE beans as well! they were absolutely DELICIOUS. 10/10, 11/10 with rice. I absolutely loved these and they are now a staple in both my garden and our school's. A must try. Oh, and absolutely beautiful. Made a lot of people go "What? That's a bean?" Easily one of my favorite crops from last year.

Review:

Grew these beans for the first time last year in Nova Scotia, Canada. They lived up to the hype and description in the catalogue. Was a family favorite. Can't wait to grow them again in 2015. Great fresh out of the garden and cooked
