What are the pros? Beautiful, prolific, easy!
What are the cons? Not quite as flavorful
Tried these the first time this year in my trellis bed where the soil is still getting established. They took a little fertilizing to get them going because of the poor soil quality, but after that they were AMAZING! Took right off and were my first pole bean to produce and very prolific. These are the only bean I have seen that send out runners not only from the top shoot, but from side leaf shoots as well. They will fill out their space and produce many many long beans. I was harvesting them almost every day for a while. There are also beautiful with attractive foliage, amazing bright purple flowers, and the bright red beans speak for themselves. The flowers attracted hummingbirds as well. These would be great grown up over a pergola with the red beans hanging down. The vines are very vigorous. I handled their vertical enthusiasm by bending them over double and winding them up the trellis again, and this seemed to work fine. They just kept going! My new favorite bean!
