Bush. This famous Dutch heirloom bean has an incomparable flavor. The tender and superbly delicious 7” pods are yellow with amazing purple streaks! Also makes a tasty shelled bean. Popular with chefs and gourmets. Compact plants set high yields.

Review:

Been growing these beans for several years and have never been disappointed. You have to let them get big though(6-8 inches long) to get the best flavor. They will still be tender and crisp at that stage. We like them cooked with some ham or bacon, and a little onion. We eat them with black pepper and a splash of cider vinegar...it's a Pennsylvania Dutch thing. Try these beans, they're tasty and foolproof!

What are the pros? Grew well in part shade & clay

What are the cons? Not very flavorful

Review:

I bought these simply because they looked neat. They grew well in our cold wet summer last year, but the flavor was off. I tried them fresh picked and cooked like a green bean, but the pod had a weird kind of slimy texture when cooked. Growing them again this year since i have leftover seeds and will try shelling them like lima beans after letting them mature more. By the way, the color disappears when you cook them, so they end up looking like fat yellow wax beans.

What are the pros? Quick, Beautiful

What are the cons? Ok Yield

Review:

The beans taste good and look fantastic. They were very quick to mature and start producing, and there seem to be more beans on the way. I had some problems with stem death on a few plants. The leafing area of the plant is fine, but the stem browned and withered. I tied the plant up so the stem isn't supporting any weight, and oddly enough they are producing beans...

Review:

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.
