Purple Teepee Bean

Bush, 60 days. Super-productive bush type, yielding straight, purple pods. These are held above the foliage--a great advantage that makes the pods easier to see and harvest, and keeps them from contact with the ground. Pick them young, at 4-5 inches, for flavorful, tender snaps.

Review:

We have a fairly small garden (5x10), so we were delighted w this great bean that's very compact, super easy, and a fast maturity. This bush bean is almost also "ornamental" with beautiful dark green leaves and gorgeous light pink flowers. We found the yield very high every year we've planted it, which is the last 3 years now! The first time we sauteed the the pods in fried bacon and onions, and they were a great taste and very tender!! I have a friend who I gave several seed to and she let the plants dry out and made an awesome bean side dish! Definitely one we'll plant every year!!

Review:

I only wish I had more room to plant more of these beans. My grandsons and I love these beans. I gave some to my neighbor and after cooking and eating these beans, I thought to myself, I should have kept my beans. One of my twin daughters like the beans, but the other did not. The raw beans do have a very strong odor when left ou on the counter. So until I was able to trim them I had to cover them with foil and refrigerate. I will plant these again next year.

What are the pros? Love the color raw

What are the cons? Wish they stayed purple cooked

Review:

Worked pretty good in our container garden on the deck. 1st experience with purple beans and will return again. I was so baffled how they changed color upon cooking I had to Google an explanation. I can now bore my friends with a scientific answer or I can amaze them by just showing them the before and after. And on top of all of that they are delicious. Makes cooking and eating a real treat.

Review:

We try new beans every year, but this is my family's favorite. The purple pods are pure and beautiful, and super easy to pick. They produce heavily and have no strings. Although they lose their color when cooked, they are wonderfully tasty fresh, frozen, or canned. We will continue to plant this variety every year!

Review:

These beans rival my Blue Lake Bush Beans in taste, size and quality, which I planted right next to these....but grow very differently. The bean pods started just a bit later than the blue lakes and at first I thought the harvest was a bit light with just a few beans per plant. Then after a couple of weeks they started producing like crazy and I was having just as hard of a time keeping up with the picking as I was with the blue lakes. The blue lakes are hard to find amongst the green foliage, but these purple beans send their beans up on naked stems to dangle above the foliage, almost as if the plants were saying, "here you go, have my beans friend!" There are sometimes a few beans hidden underneath amongst the leaves, so be sure to take a quite peek. They produced like crazy almost up until frost...they slowed a little at the end, but still produced. They taste great, freeze great and look pretty when picked with green and yellow beans too. Highly recommend! :)
