Pole, 70 days. This delicious heirloom was discovered in the Ozark mountains by Henry Fields in the 1930’s and is still requested by many old-timers of this region. The pods are bright purple, stringless, and tender. Plants grow to 6’ and produce heavy yields.

Review:

Grew these beans last year and loved them! I just pushed the beans into the soil with my index finger in front of some bushes and they grew like crazy, trellising up the bushes. My toddler loved them as well!

Review:

I LOVE THESE. I wouldn't say that I have a green thumb, but these are so easy to grow that even I can grow them. They sprouted within a week and quickly produced beautiful purple flowers. I loved how easy it was to find the pods because in previous years I had missed the idea pick time due to not seeing the pods.

Review:

I always loved purple beans because they are easy to spot when harvesting. I used to grow bush beans, but would lose some plants and beans to slugs and pests. Because these are so tall, I hardly have a problem with pests or slugs. They might damage the base of the plant, but it doesn't seem to affect the heath of the plant or the harvest. I also didn't realize what a space saver pole beans were until I tried growing them. You can plant other crops all around the base of the beans, doubling your garden space. Our resident hummingbird, Jeff, enjoys the flowers on these beans. You're going to need strong, tall supports for these beans. They are very vigorous. They easily grow at least 6' plus.

Review:

Awesome beans! My favorite. Some of my family say they have a funny taste but many others have told me they are great. They are very tender, super heavy yields, continue harvest for most of the season. No complaints here! Love this bean in every way.

Review:

I planted these in my first stage of planting seeds with no experience whatsoever. Both in indoor pots and in the ground outside, these broke through the soil in less than 3 days after planting. California's drought didn't stop them as they grew to about 6' tall in two months time with little water. The purple vine stems are beautiful in the garden.
