What are the pros? very easy grower
What are the cons? none, very satisfied
Takes up very little room in the garden. The purple stripes disappear with cooking. Similar taste to that of wax bean. We just steam or boil and add a little pat of butter and sprinkle of salt. Very good!

What are the pros? Great fresh cooked
What are the cons? Dosent can very well
These were great big strong plants with loads of beans with great fresh cooked flavor. They also make a fine dry bean that was a good bean for ham and beans. The down side was that they did'nt retain the great fresh flavor when canned, they had a real light green bean taste. And for me I like a strong green bean flavor fresh and canned. Heavy producers.

What are the pros? Beautiful beans
These were a nice way to add some variety to the garden. The beans look exactly like the picture, but yes, they do fade to yellow when cooked. I only got an average yield, but I think they got a bit shaded since I planted them in a fairly compact raised bed. I will certainly buy again in 2015 !
