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? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Grow tall before beans show

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.

Review:

Germination: Excellent Growth: Constant Production: You'd better really like pole beans because this variety doesn't stop. We were picking 1 1/2lbs a day. Delicious steamed with walnut oil, balsamic vinegar & garlic dressing with almond slices. Also wonderful as dilled beans. The pods tend to become large more quickly toward the end of production, so you need to stay on top of it.

Review:

Great bean! It's absolutely gorgeous and easy to see when you're picking them. I planted mine to grow over a tunnel I had built and it's simply beautiful walking inside the shady tunnel to view the clusters of purple beans and blossoms. Their shape is fun too, kinda wide and bumpy, and can grow pretty long before getting stringy, I'd say around 7"-8" or so. Impressed with that. At first, I picked tons of these beauties and was excited with their productivity. But now they seem to be taking a break. I do see new blossoms. I hope to continue to get more beans until late summer. The flavor is nutty and very good.

Review:

I wanted to try something new to my patio garden and chose purple beans after reading the comments from other customers. Unfortunately, I cannot brag about the same success as others. My beans sprouted very fast and were growing nicely. Unfortunate part was that they.....never stopped growing and after them reaching more than seven feet in height but no blooms, I decided enough is enough and pulled them out. I am not buying these seeds again.

Review:

I thought it would be fun to grow these in pots on the patio and have them wind up the posts for our patio cover. I'm so glad I did that because these plants are really pretty with their broad green leaves, pretty purple flowers, and really impressive long dark purple beans! The beans are so dark they are almost black and they look and feel like they have a satin coat to them. I planted these at the same time as some Dragon Tongue and Chinese Red Noodle beans and these have been producing like crazy already while I've gotten just a few Dragon Tongue beans so far and am still waiting on the noodle beans to start producing. I will definitely grow these again!
