What are the pros? High Visibility, great yield!
What are the cons? Wish I had planted more.
These are a very impressive bean they are a little slow to start but once they start blooming the show never stops. The flowers are stunning, though oddly not attractive to bees, and once the pods start forming below the flowers they are a true show stopper. I manage a Chef's CSA and they are unreasonably popular with these folks because of their color and the ease of cooking, they have a really unique flavor among the bean families and if gently blanched in water which is reserved from previous blanchings, they will retain some of their color when cooked--many of my chefs used them in composed salads as garnish. You do have to keep up with picking because they do become toxic when older--must be vigilant, as older beans still look delicious.
