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:

This was our favorite pick last year! Great germination, grew very quickly, surpassing the sun flowers as the bunnies ate off the sunflower heads. Covered our regular wire fence thickly, looked really nice. We didn't even bother thinning, these things would fight whatever off if they needed to. We were amazed by the harvest, we planted a big late with Minnesota's growing season but still had an incredible amount of big, beautiful tender beans. So easy to spot too, unlike those sneaky green pole beans

What are the pros? Easy to grow, loads of beans

Review:

I've planted these 3 years running now and for good reason. It is a hardy plant that produces insane amounts of beans! It even laughed in the face of my Mexican Bean and Japanese Beetle invasion last year. A little slow to mature, but that's all forgotten when you have more yields than you know what to do with. Blanched and stir fried is my favorite. Even the huge, seemingly tough pods overlooked on earlier harvests prove tender. You won't be disappointed.

What are the pros? They are beautiful

What are the cons? Very stringy as the vines aged

Review:

Very pretty, easy to grow the first beans were great no strings at all but as the summer went on the plants slowed down in the heat and even the smaller beans all became very stringy so I quit picking them and used others for my canning. I won't grow again will try something else

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!

What are the pros? Easy to grown, great yield

What are the cons? None

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.
