What are the pros? Beautiful, tasty, easy

What are the cons? Deer LOVE them!

Review:

We have grown these a few years and probably always will based on the beauty of the purple blooms (most beans I have seen have white blooms) and the unbelievably pretty, uniformly-straight purple pods that are totally green inside. They are juicy and sweet, with a nice early old-style flavor like when you worked the bean field with Grandma, but without the stringy, hard pods. I know about green beans, and these purple-skinned treasures are even better than Grandma's. Unfortunately, the deer seem to love them, but our plot did provide protection for the rest of our garden, if anything else. When pickled or cooked, they turn bright green, which is fun for kids... if any make it in the house...

What are the pros? Pretty, easy to grow, & yummy

What are the cons? Short life

Review:

They must like our soil because these beans have been highly productive for us, though the plants do wither after producing. I love how they change color when cooked, so you know when they're done.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, early producer

What are the cons? Low production

Review:

These are beautiful and pack a lot of punch for a small bush. Flavor is great and i have not found a single string! I would say the only drawback for me was they did not produce as much as I would have liked. It may be I am used to the endless supply pole beans provide. Overall a terrific beautiful bean!

What are the pros? Very pretty

What are the cons? Not quite productive enough

Review:

My soil isn't all that great, and I'm not a super attentive gardener. If you're in my situation, you'd be better off buying some pole and/or black-eyed beans- these are amazing producers. However, these are gorgeous. If you, like me, like pretty food, these do the trick. And kids love them too. They don't take up too much room, the flowers are pretty, and they taste good. Also, they'll only help the soil.
