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? Stunningly Beautiful, Prolific

What are the cons? None

Review:

I planted several seeds-presoaked, in each of two 20 gallon planter tubs in a mixture of soil, chicken manure and aged stall compost (horse/cow). They popped up within a week and never quit growing. Horrible weather this year; extreme high heat, flooding, 2 inches of rain in 30 minutes and high wind over 60mph and these vines just kept growing and producing! The vines and flowers are absolutely beautiful! The plum colored beans are great cooked, fresh in salads, stir-fry, or a crunchy fresh snack with low fat dip. As fast as you can pick the beans, they are back in a few days. It's early August and I have a couple gallons of beans in the freezer and many jars canned, plus eating daily and sharing. You really get your money's worth with these beans.

What are the pros? Taste great

What are the cons? I can't reach them.

Review:

These beans are producing great in the garden. I love the texture and strong bean taste. They were no problem to grow at all. I started them in cups in early April (slug problems around here), and gently transplanted them out sometime in May. They took off quickly. Have a good trellis in place at the time of planting! Trust me. I had to keep adding poles that were higher and higher. I can't even reach them anymore. The vines are at least 9 feet, maybe higher. But, they keep producing. I planted about 12 plants, and we've had them for dinner twice a week (family of 4) for about a month now, and they are still going. I think I'll save the top ones for next years seeds. They're even outperforming my Blue Lakes!!! I love them, and will probably buy them again if we eat them all.

What are the pros? Color and Yield

What are the cons? Need a lot of space

Review:

I absolutely love this bean, I've mainly used it fresh and it's been a staple of my garden the last four years. The vines are prolific and when inter planted with corn took over. I now give them their own trellis or growing structure. The color is stunning and the flavor is average, they're a nice green bean flavor when steamed fresh. I've never had a problem saving seeds either since they produce so many pods in the growing season. They keep well!

What are the pros? Grew great, tasted wonderful

What are the cons? Yes, plant made me itch

Review:

These beans easily grew to 12,' and taller. We planted them around bamboo pole tee pees, and in our corn, and had to use an ladder to pick the ones on top. I don't think there's a better purple podded pole bean suited for our area, or soil. 2018 will be my 3rd year to plant them and I'm looking forward to picking those beautiful purple pods!.

What are the pros? Excellent flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

Bean is easy to grow and the color makes it easy to find for harvesting. When the bean is cooked, the color becomes green. Harvest while the pod is small to medium size. If allowed to become too large, the pod becomes woody/stringy..
