This pole bean is easy to grow and produces lots of green pods that have purple streaks. Good flavor and very tender; the speckled seeds are popular in soup. This variety is great for hot, humid areas.

Review:

These beans grew amazingly well here during the very hot and humid summers in the deep south, 95-105F every day. I only watered when it hadn't rained in more than 4 days, mulched lightly, and applied no chemicals. Other than that the beans were put directly in the ground and let to go wild on the trellises. They started producing over a month ago and are still going strong. They are great used as green beans with pretty little purple stripes that disappear when cooked. I have not tried them as dried beans yet. They do get a string when allowed to get too big, but it is easily removed. I am 9 months pregnant and have not been picking them as often as I should, but even the huge over-ripe beans are not tough once cooked. This is my second year growing these and I have no plans of replacing these beans.

Review:

The most delicious green bean I've ever eaten! Complex flavor, even tastes good raw when picked young and tender. This is the first year I've grown them, but will plan to make them a staple from now on!

Review:

This bean is excellent, I have grown it for three years now and will continue to grow. Our region 9b, gets very hot and dry in summer and these loved that weather. I planted in three waves, once in early spring, once in early summer and then again in late summer. Picked beans up until November! They are flavorful, very tender (I like to pick a bit smaller at 4"), beautiful. They even freeze well. Can't recommend enough.

What are the cons? Wasn't rattlesnake bean

Review:

I've grown the rattlesnake bean for years, always saving my seeds. The two year drought of '11-'12 caused a complete bean failure and I was forced to buy seeds. What I grew at the GWC National Park was an embarrassment. After telling everyone how wonderful the snaps would be, I ended up with flat stringy beans. They couldn't be eaten as a snap and I gave up on even shelling them. Dry, they were just ho-hum. I'll find another source to save seeds from.
