Pole, 65 days. 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:

Several years ago, I planted some Rattlesnake beans in two earthboxes with makeshift trellises. I was blown away by the growth, production and flavor of these beans. I didn't realize how long the vines get when I planted them, so mine climbed the supports quickly and over them. The trellises wound up being very thick with bean vines that produced steadily. The problem I had in the earthboxes is that the vines were so thick that wind would knock the containers over. Mine did stop producing for a few weeks during the extreme heat, but started right up again when the temperatures dropped a little. They were still pumping out beans when the first freeze did them in. The streaks on the beans make them a little easier to spot for picking. We loved the taste of these beans and some of the younger beans were eaten raw in salads. I'm planning to grow these again next year, but in the ground and let some mature for dry beans.

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!
