Half-runner, 85 days. Here’s another Dakota variety, so you know it’s rugged! This one comes from the Hidatsa people of the upper Missouri River Valley; was introduced in Oscar Will’s Pioneer Indian Collection of seeds in 1915. Plump rose-red beans for dry use; plants climb only 3 feet or so.

What are the pros? red color

What are the cons? failed to thrive

Review:

Zone 8b. Granted everything is different in the PNW, but these beans failed to germinate and those that came up failed to thrive. For a plant that is described as "rugged" I am very disappointed.

What are the pros? Moderate producer

What are the cons? Attracted Mexican bean beetles

Review:

This says grows to 3’. LOL it’s a good thing I planted these with my other pole beans for convenience because they reached nearly 9 feet! Later than the other beans to sprout, average 4 beans per pod. My only problem was Lordy did the Mexican bean beetles love these. I didn’t have much problem with 3 other varieties but they attacked these with a vengeance.

Just OK

What are the pros? Matures early, productive

What are the cons? rotten in pod, off color

Review:

I bought these because I wanted a red bean. When cooked they turn lavender/pink. The beans mature super early and are very productive.. Vines are short, only 3-4 feet, but they still need a trellis. I made the mistake of letting them grow on the ground and any beans close to the ground (i.e. almost all of them) rotted. Too tough to eat as a green bean, and flavor/texture as a dry or shell bean is just ok.

What are the pros? just drop in & grow

What are the cons? not offered in larger quantity

Review:

We planted just one envelope of these & got a pound back to plant for next year. If approx. 50 beans produce a pound...all we can say is WOW. Would like an option for larger purchase so we could get a chance to try them as well as save seed for next year.
