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.

What are the pros? Bountiful and Beautiful

What are the cons? Can get tough

Review:

These beans were super easy to grow, absolutely beautiful in the garden, and the vines dripped with beans all summer! The downfall is that they weren't very tender, and often quite tough. I'm going to try the Blauhild Bean for my purple pole bean in 2017.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, huge harvest

What are the cons? Determinate

Review:

I've lots of beans but these purple podded pole bean are hands down the best. Easy to germinate, easy to grow and absolutely delicious. They grow purple but when cooked, they look like regular green beans. The taste is phenomenal.

What are the pros? Taste, productivity

What are the cons? cucumber beetles loved them

Review:

This is the first year I actually planted beans on a pole. To my amazement, they were inept at this task and were unable to wrap around a 2x2, so I tied them every few days. The taste was quite nice, they were tender and easy to pick. The vines are productive and grew well past 7 feet tall. What I couldn't believe was that cucumber beetles preferred these to everything in the garden except for cantaloupe. Keep in mind that I go out of my way to buy varieties that do not attract beetles since they are such an epidemic problem along with squash bugs and vine borers, so the squash and cucumbers I grow are unbothered...these still seemed to handle the chewing until I got them under control (always happens when we leave town for a week) and are still producing at the end of September. I will plant these again and see if the vines look any better if I stay on top of prevention next year.

What are the pros? Super productive

What are the cons? that i didn't plant more :(

Review:

Great pole bean, easy to find since they're purple! Everyone says they're sweeter than the green beans. Growing them on an arched trellis, vines reached 10/12 feet. FYI they turn green when you cook them and little kids think its cause they're magic beans.

What are the pros? Beautiful plant, easy to grow

What are the cons? none

Review:

Beautiful plant that required very little work. They would be exquisite on an arbor. I was not prepared this time for the height. Make sure you give them something high to wrap around. I simply wrapped them each day around the 5 ft cage I had for them. It engulfed it and cascaded down. Made the cage disappear and turned it into a work of art instead. If I had something taller this plant would have required no work at all. We were swarmed with pest this year but these hardly had any insect problems. Never saw a bug on them but did see a few holes in some of the leaves. Produced many pounds of wonderful silky beans. We have yet to try any but the little girl next door (4) loves them. They were planted June 1st and they are still producing three months later. Super easy plant to grow. One plant pays for the cost of the seeds and then some. We will be planting this every year.
