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.

Best beans we ever grew
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

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!.

Blauhilde Bean delicious

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..

Best tasting bean ever

What are the pros? Beautiful, tasty, productive

What are the cons? A bit late

Review:

Wonderful, tasty, beautiful, productive. However, in Saskatchewan it would probably be best to start indoors a few weeks before last frost to get production going early. I found it didn’t start producing until late in August and it was a warm summer in 2017.

Amazing Beans

What are the pros? Prolific

What are the cons? Maybe a little TOO prolific

Review:

I grew these beans with sunflowers to give them something to climb up. And climb they did! 7 feet! They took longer to bear than my Dragon Tongue beans, but when they did, they did in a huge way. I had no idea what to do with all the beans! They were so heavy with fruit they pulled the sunflowers down! Best taste when picked early around 4" for fresh eating. I froze some of the larger ones that became almost 7" and they were still fine.

What are the pros? Doesn't get tough

What are the cons? None

Review:

I had some issues early on this year with pill bugs eating the new sprouts and had to replant all my beans, which put them behind in production. Once I got that problem under control, however, they shot up and took over my bean trellis. I agree with all the other posters when they say quick, pretty and easy to find purple beans BUT I have something to add: they never got really tough for me. Even large, if I roasted them they were as tender as young beans and my family devoured them every time. That's not to say they never got tough, just that it took them much longer to do so and I had a much larger harvest as a result. I'm not sure I"ll plant any other bean next year...
