This delicious heirloom was discovered in the Ozark mountains by Henry Fields in the 1930s and is still requested by many old-timers of this region. The pods are bright purple, stringless, and tender. Plants grow to 6’ and produce heavy yields.

What are the pros? Voracious grower, beans galore

What are the cons? Not great for preservation

Review:

These beans were my first go-around with a pole variety. They took off! The plants grew well over my seven-foot-high supports and produced GOBS of beans. Unfortunately, I didn't find this variety to be great for canning or freezing. Their shape (long and flat) caused them to get pretty soggy during processing. But for lots and lots of fresh eating, they were great!

What are the pros? Beautiful and prolific!

What are the cons? Short season

Review:

I grew these beans on a cattle panel arch and they quickly covered the support with lush growth and produce. The breans hang down from the top like purple jewels...so fun to harvest! The flavor is out of this world... but harvest them young. Otherwise they can get stringy.

Review:

Wow! Bought these at my local food CO-OP to add some color to the garden and was very impressed! I planted them with Kentucky Wonders right beside them and they outperformed them hands down in every category. Came up in half the time, produced a month earlier and right now they are still covered with beans and foliage while the Kentuckys are the local Japanese beetle hotel and every leaf has been stripped. You'd have to see them side by side to believe it. I have harvested pounds from them compared to handfuls of the others. I went to the CO-OP to get more to plant and give some to the neighbors for the fall and they were out so I picked every single bean off and in less than a week they grew new streamers that are covered in flowers that the hummingbirds LOVE. I had to add tree limbs to the trellises to give them more to grow on. 10 ft! We have been eating them in everything, hardly any strings even when they get long, and great flavor! Next year They may be the only variety I plant.

Review:

I planted these beans to create a wall of foliage against my bedroom which has a west south facing wall which gets very hot in the summer. I direct sowed the beans in March and got about 85% germination. We had a very cool, wet, and cloudy spring and beginning to summer, & I didn't expect to get much. WOW! These beans caught up with the sunflowers, grew up the sunflowers, and were putting on 2" of vines DAILY making their way to over 14 feet tall in 3 months! Plants only got about 5 hours of direct sun per day. When they started to bloom, the beans just kept cranking out as long as I picked daily! From just 1 plant, I harvested over 1 lb in 2 weeks. These are the best fresh beans I've ever eaten. It's like healthy french fries. Lol!. Stringless up to 7" long, sweet and crunchy beany flavor, and wasn't bothered by the pillbug infestation that's happened in my area the past year. Also no other pests wanted to come near these. HIGHLY recommend this productive variety.

Review:

They may take a little while to get started, but once they do, they produce like crazy. They're like Kentucky wonder, but the purple pods mean you never worry that you missed a bunch beans and that the plant will stop producing. Plants grow to the top of my 7' trellis, then send wobbly tendrils up another 3 feet before they tip over and twine into the wall of leaves. I love the flavor of the raw beans. Cooked, they're just ok. I haven't tried them as dry beans yet.
