What are the pros? Color and flavor
What are the cons? Few beans per plant
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).
