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:

We try new beans every year, but this is my family's favorite. The purple pods are pure and beautiful, and super easy to pick. They produce heavily and have no strings. Although they lose their color when cooked, they are wonderfully tasty fresh, frozen, or canned. We will continue to plant this variety every year!

Review:

These beans rival my Blue Lake Bush Beans in taste, size and quality, which I planted right next to these....but grow very differently. The bean pods started just a bit later than the blue lakes and at first I thought the harvest was a bit light with just a few beans per plant. Then after a couple of weeks they started producing like crazy and I was having just as hard of a time keeping up with the picking as I was with the blue lakes. The blue lakes are hard to find amongst the green foliage, but these purple beans send their beans up on naked stems to dangle above the foliage, almost as if the plants were saying, "here you go, have my beans friend!" There are sometimes a few beans hidden underneath amongst the leaves, so be sure to take a quite peek. They produced like crazy almost up until frost...they slowed a little at the end, but still produced. They taste great, freeze great and look pretty when picked with green and yellow beans too. Highly recommend! :)

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

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!
