Pole. 65 days.Spectacular climbing type makes enormous purple pods! Pods stay tender and stringless, even at 10 inches long! Plants are gorgeous in the garden as well, with the rose-purple of the blooms contrasting nicely with the rich, deep purple of the developing pods. Vigorous, productive vines reach a moderate 9 feet in height. The richly-flavored pods are best appreciated when used fresh off the vines. This heirloom from Germany is tolerant to mosaic virus, too.

What are the pros? Beautiful and no pests

What are the cons? Strings

Review:

This is the first year I've grown these beans. I'm in zone 6b. They are gorgeous beans--the picture doesn't do them justice. Mine are straight and so dark they are almost black, whether young or more mature. Maybe mine are so dark because they are in full sun. They are lovely. They taste pretty good, too. But they definitely do have to be stringed, whether young or larger. Really, nothing has attacked them, pestwise and that is awesome because we are usually overtaken by Mexican bean beetles. I'm looking forward to growing them again.

What are the pros? Never fails me, prolific.

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

Very tender even when large. I plant every 6 inches and give room to trellis across to another bed otherwise I can’t reach. You give them room they grow and produce more beans. They are wonderful frozen and this year will see how well they can. They never fail me and thankfully the Japanese beetles don’t seem to bother them. Easy to see anti pick. Sure beats bending over to pick.

What are the pros? Easy growing, prolific

What are the cons? Slow to mature

Review:

It took a long time for the beans to reach maturity (planted mid-May, first harvest late August in Zone 6), but they are super prolific once they start appearing and the purple flowers and vines are a beauty to behold until then -- especially with them climbing up my corn stalks! I'll definitely grow these again -- now I'll just know I have to be patient for them to mature!

What are the pros? taste, flowers, and yield

What are the cons? none

Review:

A terrific tasty bean, with very pretty flowers. I'll definitely be saving some seeds to plant again next year. Probably my favorite bean that I've planted. I grow my garden in my front yard, so I try to concern myself with the aesthetics of what I plan. The pretty purple flowers and beautify purple beans adds very nice look to what is also a very tasty bean. Two thumbs up!

What are the pros? Easy to grow, beautiful vine

What are the cons? No beans

Review:

These beans sprouted quickly and have grown to at least 8-9 feet on my poles. They are beautiful and healthy looking but here it is July 27 and I don't see even one bean or flower on all the vines. They get plenty of sunlight, good soil and water is not the issue. I see pollinators in the garden so I don't think that is the reason either. Does anyone have a theory as to what is going wrong??
