What are the pros? great color taste, few pests
What are the cons? stringy if let grow large
I tried these for the first time last year to vine up my Cherokee blue eagle corn and they worked wonderfully, although they did grow taller than the corn. They didn't have huge yields, but they received very little maintenance since I was out of town most of the summer, and they gave great yields for being mostly ignored for two and a half months.
I have grown kentucky wonder and whites seeded heirloom bean from my neighbor, but these beans have the best flavor of any of them. The only downsides are that you can't allow them to grow too large if you want them for snap beans, and that they don't retain their purple color when cooked (the natural purple pigment reacts with heat).
