Bush, 60 days. 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:

My 8 year old daughter had some little friends over recently and they were literally fighting over who got the next dragon tongue bean I could find. These are beautiful, fun, and utterly delicious both raw and cooked. Not many make it into the house but I did harvest enough recently to saut? some in olive oil, garlic, and rosemary. Yum!!! We've had an extremely cold and wet season (it's June 24th and the nights still aren't over 50 degrees) and these are going strong in my garden. I do suspect they would be more prolific under better weather conditions but when I compare how these are doing to the other veggies in my garden, I am very grateful to the dragon tongue bean. These will be in my garden every year. As a side note, all of mine are planted in containers and doing very well there, which has allowed me to save room in the raised beds for more greedy veggies (I'm looking at you, tomatoes).

What are the pros? Delicious Raw!

What are the cons? Medium Production

Review:

These are favorites of the kiddos in our community garden because of their name and color. But I find them absolutely delicious as a raw snack in the garden! If you want to steam or saute them be sure not to let them get too mature. If you miss a few let them hang around and use them as shell beans in soup. Fantastic either way!

What are the pros? Tolerated Heat, color

What are the cons? Flavor

Review:

I started these late but they tolerated the heat better than other variety I planted. I enjoyed the color of these but for me I just did not enjoy the flavor. I would still recommend to others because everyone's tastebuds are different and they grew well in my garden.

Review:

These are some amazing plant! These are extremely productive. I had one that I was going to transplant and I accidentally bent the main stem. I thought for sure I killed the poor thing but didn't want to give up on it. I stuck it in a plain paper bag with fresh organic soil and watered it with high hopes. Within a week it already had a new main branch with flowers on it! Needless to say, the plant now has been transplanted again into a garden box and is producing heavily. I recommend these to anyone ! Super sweet! I will have so many that I may try my hand at canning or possible blanching and freezing. I wish we could post images of these beauties!
