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? great color taste, few pests

What are the cons? stringy if let grow large

Review:

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).

Review:

Grew these at age 7, in 1959!!! Amazingly beautiful, and productive...steam or boil and watch them suddenly change to brilliant green....and, they're delicious. Been growing them ever since. No seed collection is complete without them.

What are the pros? Very easy to grow

What are the cons? None

Review:

I planted only a dozen beans, but reaped baskets full, froze some and let others dry. I have never had a bean to produce like these. It makes a wonderful large dried bean. The vines are absolutely beatiful. They reach 10 to 12 ft high, had toget a step ladder to pick. You have to pick before the bean sets on to be tender. A great tasting bean.

EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? easy

What are the cons? plan more 4 low germination

Review:

This bean didn't have a brilliant start. In fact, I gavw up on it because of the location and after the 14 days there was nothing I could see past my crazy tomatoes. But 2 maybe 3 beans made plants and I am drowning in beans. This is my new fave. No matter how big they get, they remain tender. And they are a workhorse.
