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:

We have tried 6 different varieties of pole beans, and these are by far our favorite. They were delicious both small and very large. We loved eating them raw, but we also blanched and froze quite a few. They froze well, and tasted fresh when steamed from frozen. They were so good, that whenever I went to the garden to pick them the dogs would coming running for a 'treat'. We staggered planted by 2 week intervals and had beans all summer long.

Review:

These were excellent beans. They are a pole bean, but don't get out of control and crazy. However, they still produce a lot of beans! They are beautiful as well with their purple blooms. Really easy to care for. Pest didn't bother these as much as the Greasy Grits I grew along side them. They have a wonderful flavor on top of it all! I ate them in the pod

What are the pros? Prolific, Pacific Northwest OK

What are the cons? None

Review:

These grow fantastically in our Pacific Northwest garden. Our season is short, and mine is even shorter because of the limited sunlight my garden receives. These grow so tall I can barely reach them and last year they were so healthy and happy they broke my trellis! My husband prefers the flavor of these to any green bean, so I make sure to grow them every season! They are usually the last of the beans I grow to fully mature, but that just means my season is longer as I can harvest these almost until the end of Summer. Must say, though, the pods are not stringless unless you get them at just the right time. Wait a moment too long and they are pretty tough.

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).
