What are the pros? Vigorous, nice colors, flavor!
What are the cons? Inconsistent growth pattern
The Dragon's Tongue bean is a real stunner, and performer in my northern garden. The pods grow fast into very plump, long and stringless beans with an intense bean flavor. There are really no drawbacks to this variety, aside from one, rather odd thing. Some of the beans stay short and stocky like a proper bush bean, while others I planted kept growing like pole beans and has a thinner stem climbing to 4 feet or taller. This seems in my case to be the ones that were planted indoors and in the greenhouse. The ones in the field all stayed small. Both "sub-varieties" produced well though, so in my mind it was no harm no foul.
