Bush, 60 days. This famous Dutch heirloom bean has an incomparable flavor. The tender and superbly delicious 7” pods are yellow with amazing purple streaks! Also makes a tasty shelled bean. Popular with chefs and gourmets. Compact plants set high yields.

Review:

These beans are beyond phenomenal! I have grown almost any bean you can think of and these are by far my favorite for so many reasons. They germinated fast and each one grew strong; I planted in a container as well as in the garden and both yielded the same amazing results. They love a trellis even thought they are a bush bean. Colors are amazing (not quite yellow like in the picture, for me, more so an ivory with beautiful purple speckles) The taste is mild and delicious and they grow super fast. Right now it is the end of October in zone 6b and they are producing like crazy. I planted a Fall crop in early August not thinking I made the cut, but I was pleasantly surprised. A very versatile bean that can be grown for an extended gardening period. I grow from early April (in succession) until the end of October. We have had many chilly nights and these beauties continue to grow. Love, Love, Love!

Review:

Goodbye tough supermarket there's-only-one-kind, green beans. Hello, silky smooth Dragon Tongue Bush Bean! They're kind of miraculous. They start out with purple stripes, but when you cook them they turn vibrant green. They start out fuzzy and sticky and end up smooth and delicate when cooked. I don't think I can let them get old enough to pick dried beans! They're that good. Raw in a salad or blanched for two minutes and shocked, they are my favorite thing our garden produced this year. Better yet, urban vermin seem to have left them alone.

What are the cons? Don't like high pH soil

Review:

The beans grew and produced okay. I got about a little more than a quart jar of dried beans from a 60 ft row. I'm not sure if that's good or not, I was certainly disappointed. Plants petered out early in the summer and showed strong iron deficiencies when I replanted again for a fall crop. I'm going to plant out the rest of the seed, but never buy these again. Also had spider mite problems. I'm not sure if anyone else noticed this, but I got two different colors of beans. One maroon with speckling, and the other tan with maroon speckling. That was neat.

I love these beans so much! I planted to many, but they were a hit when I shared them. They are very prolific! I get a basket full every 2-3 days! Will definitely plant again.
