What are the pros? Beautiful, tasty, easy
What are the cons? Deer LOVE them!
We have grown these a few years and probably always will based on the beauty of the purple blooms (most beans I have seen have white blooms) and the unbelievably pretty, uniformly-straight purple pods that are totally green inside. They are juicy and sweet, with a nice early old-style flavor like when you worked the bean field with Grandma, but without the stringy, hard pods. I know about green beans, and these purple-skinned treasures are even better than Grandma's. Unfortunately, the deer seem to love them, but our plot did provide protection for the rest of our garden, if anything else. When pickled or cooked, they turn bright green, which is fun for kids... if any make it in the house...
