Vigorous, high-yielding Thai variety. The lovely, deep purple pods have green tips, are crisp and stay tender to amazing lengths, often reaching 20 inches! The productive variety is a local favorite in Thailand where long beans are appreciated as a very important staple crop.

What are the pros? The beans are colorful,

What are the cons? An insect has attacked!

Review:

The first year I grew these there was absolutely no problems; this was 2 years ago; this year they have been attacked by what looks like fruit flies. I have been able to harvest much nevertheless, but there have been loss of about one fourth. I can't figure it out. We had some very hot days in July, early August; worse than the previous year. I have had to water them and the leaves have gotten wet. Don't know what I am doing wrong.

Review:

I've grown these lovely beans for years. They are the best for throwing in quick garden stir fries. Very good fried with okra, corn, onion, garlic and lots of cumin seed. They thrived this year in spite of heavy rains (we are about 20 inches ahead for the year) that killed almost everything else, deer that ate my regular and shell beans and the storm that blew over their trellis. As a matter of fact I was so disgusted with the state of the garden I said the *&^^^ with it and left them on the ground where they scrambled over the weeds (weeds are thriving) and got my attention with their lovely purple color. Unlike other purple veggies they do not turn green when cooked but rather turn a darker midnight blue shade, makes nice contrast. Grow a few plants and consider yourself blessed no matter the weather!!

Review:

These plants are amazing. A dozen plants creates enough beans for two people to eat fresh beans several times a week throughout most of the summer. My mistake was a poor trellising job (too short and too many beans on the trellis), which made it easy for the beans to hide (yes even 18 inch long purple beans can get lost). I have found that picking when they are the width of a pencil, 12" long makes for the best texture and flavor--the texture is unpleasant when fat enough to see the bean bumps within the pods. I have grown them for two summers, one hotter than normal and one cooler than normal and in both cases the plants continued to make beans and beans all summer up until frost. Plus they keep their purple color when cooked, which I prefer saut?ed in a little olive oil not boiled. They are an unusual-looking bean so they are fun to show around. In my tiny garden it is plants that really earn their keep that get a return performance. These I will grow every year.

Review:

How is it that we don't see this variety more? It's fantastic! I started selling it at the market and it's been a customer magnet for sure. I'll be saving seed and planting many more rows next year since everyone loves it so much. And here's a cooking tip: Tell your customers steaming is best for keeping color but if boiling, cook whole and cut it up afterwards. The cut edges seem to soak up extra water and the texture is best when uncut. Hope this helps! :)
