What are the pros? easy, tasty, productive

What are the cons? none it was great

Review:

Last year was my first attempt growing, and these beans have to be one of my favorites! I wasn't yet familiar with what to expect out of a single plant, and only grew two. This year I'm dedicating as much room as possible, it's just a dang good bean. My parents, brother, and I all prefer them raw or slightly blanched and tossed in salads to preserve as much of the unique coloring as possible. Large pods that hadn't yet formed their beans were very tender and tasty. For lack of a better description, I would say that they have an oddly refreshing taste. The short size and productive habit had me finding hidden beans near the center all the time, which was honestly just amusing, how could I miss such a colorful specimen? Try growing them, it's very worthwhile!

What are the pros? Can Grow in Containers

What are the cons? Purple Goes Away When Cooked

Review:

These plants are great producers and I did not have any issues with pests that I can recall. You have to look under the abundant leaves and then you will see your beans! The way the foliage sits you do not always see them right off. These taste wonderful! And I love that you do not have to string them, always a bonus. I remember when I was growing up in the dog days of the Southern Summer I'd have to sit and string beans for hours on end with my Great Grand Parents, and 2 sets of my other Grand Parents, as well as my parents and string beans it seemed for an eternity because we all had huge gardens :0) I loved being with my family but the stringing was my least favorite part before we canned them all up! With these beans I do not have that issue! And as I said they are so tasty! The chipmonks love them too however, so be forwarned about that. As sweet and cute as the chippies are I still don't want them eating all my hard work!

What are the pros? Pretty beans

What are the cons? Don't twine, have to tie them

Review:

Very tasty and pretty. They were easy to grow but would not climb. I had to tie them to stakes. Very low bush, about 12 to 18 in tall. They wilted in mid-summer. They definitely preferred 70's and 80's to our upper 90's in mid-summer. Wax beans are a little sweeter than regular snaps. Good for salads.

What are the pros? Delicious

What are the cons? None

Review:

Love these. They're beautiful and delicious.. Easy to grow.. Make sure the rabbits don't get 'em. The only thing is that they grow fast so if you wait they'll get big and too chewy. Of course you could dry the beans inside and cook them with soup.

What are the pros? So beautiful and tasty

What are the cons? none

Review:

I have grown this bean for over 20 years. Always reliable, not picky, does not need much fertility. In my older age have had to go to rasied containers and they grow just fine that way too. They yield a lot of beans...they are larger and flatter than green beans, and easy to see with that yellow color and purplish red striping. I cook like green beans usually, but often they put on a second fluch and those I let get to shell-out stage...just mature, not dry. Those I cook with some ham base, onion and a hot ppper...and serve with rice. These are my go to bean, hands down.
