Purple Podded Pole Bean

65-75 days. Discovered in an Ozark garden in the 1930s, this cherished heirloom produces a heavy yield of beautiful, deep wine-red pods that are 5" to 7" long and about 1/2" thick. They are flavorful, high quality, meaty and string-less. The Beans are borne on sturdy, purple-tinged vines that climb vigorously to 6' tall. Install a twiggy tee-pee and plant Purple Podded Pole Beans around it so that you may guide its vines to create a living fort for your children. The wine-red Beans are easy to discern among the foliage for easy harvest by little hands. Once blanched, the yummy Beans turn bright green. (OP.)

One packet of about 75 seeds

  • Information
  • Vertically-growing Pole Beans are as perfect for small space gardens as they are in larger potagers accented with decorative supportive architecture. Before sowing seed in the spring, first install the structures through which they will weave their wondrous vines and yield their coveted Beans. Help train them as they grow for maximum coverage and harvest. Beans are native to South America: sow when soil has reliably warmed to 60°F or by the last frost date. Harvest straight to the kitchen at their optimal size for eating, usually when small. Pick filet types when thin. Don't wait until seeds form in their tender pods because by then, the sweetness, not to mention the tender-crispness, is lost.

    Average seed life: 2-3 years.
