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? Quick, tasty, productive

What are the cons? Tough when large

Review:

Lovely bean that germinated fast and was heavily productive. It's tampered off now in the Houston heat, but 7 plants produced a few pounds of beans over the last three months. I trained them along my front fence and they were quite striking to look at. Be sure to pick daily, as they develop an inner hard skin that is unpleasant to eat. Small beans store well in the fridge and are pleasantly sweet and flavorful. Older leaves were heavily impacted by leafroller caterpillars despite efforts to contain them. Despite the damage plants still produced well.

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.
