Purple Teepee Bean

Bush, 60 days. Super-productive bush type, yielding straight, purple pods. These are held above the foliage--a great advantage that makes the pods easier to see and harvest, and keeps them from contact with the ground. Pick them young, at 4-5 inches, for flavorful, tender snaps.

Review:

I bought these as part of my yearly try a new vegetable theme. The kids pick a new vegie to plant and try. This year we planted these beans. The kids not only thought the purple beans were neat but the best part is these beans turn green when you cook them. They have been renamed magic beans by the youngest kids. The flavor is excellent and after trying these we have decided to not plant the plain green beans but plant these instead. We like these much better. We highly recommend!

What are the pros? freaking out the in-laws

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

silly me thinking a bean with the word teepee in it's name would be a pole bean. However it was fun introducing the in-laws to new and different colored beans.

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Purple only in hull

Review:

Tried this plant for a fall planting in south Florida, which is high pest season. It was very resistant to everything, including root knot nematodes, which wiped out my other string bean crops. Prolific plants, attractive and fascinating to customers, good taste and texture. Will definitely plant again in the spring!

What are the pros? Extremely easy & lots of beans

What are the cons? none

Review:

I planted twice through the summer, they produced for many weeks more than other varieties I've grown in the past. The color is an intense fabulous deep purple, & richly green inside. Very flavorful, slender long straight shape. There is nothing I don't like about these & will plant more next summer & many summers to come

What are the pros? Color and flavor

What are the cons? Few beans per plant

Review:

I should have planted more... They have a wonderful flavor. It's interesting to watch them turn from a very dark purple to green while cooking them. There have only been about four out of my dozen plants that have produced so far. Only 1-3 bean pods per. It's hard to keep track as they ripen randomly. I'll go through that section of the garden and don't see any ripe beans, then go through later that evening or next day, to find two fully ripe. They do blend into the rest of the plant. The beautiful plant has as dark of stems as the bean pods themselves. As the weather gets hotter, they seem to jolt up an out more, so hopefully they will produce more beans soon. They have corn as their trellis and appear to strangle some of the corn (which doesn't seem to mind).
