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? Nice color

What are the cons? Very tough and stringy.

Review:

This is the first time I have grown pole beans. The purple color made them easy to spot on the vine, but they get big very quickly, and many were so stringy and tough that my family would not eat them. I will not grow these again.

Review:

These are my new favorite! I grew these on a garden arch that my daughter welded for me and they grew up and over the full 8 feet of it and back down the other side!! Lots of the most delicious beans ever and they look beautiful!!! Next year I will grow a arch tunnel around my beds with these. Love picking these also because you don't have to bend over to pick them.

Review:

This is an absolutely wonderful bean and I couldn't be happier with the results. Not only does it produce some of the sweetest beans I've had, but it is also gorgeous when it flowers. The description says plants grow to 6 feet... more like 16 feet! I have 12 feet of chicken wire attached to my porch and the beans were up and over it in a hurry We don't have a very long season here in Maine so a strong grower like this is quite a find. Purple podded pole beans are going to be in my garden for many years to come. Highly recommended!

What are the pros? Delicious, heavy producer

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

These beans are fantastic! They are delicious straight off the vine and cook up nicely too. The pods are huge - often 6 - 8 inches or more. I planted approximately 8 vines and I'm picking 50-75 beans every 3 or 4 days. I can't eat them fast enough and have frozen a lot for winter. I will definitely be growing these again!
