Purple Queen Bush Bean

50-55 days. Tolerant of cooler temperatures, Purple Queen can be planted two weeks before most other varieties. Hardy and very productive, it has pretty, mauve-purple flowers on strong, upright plants. Its rich, burgundy Beans grow to 5½" long with an attractive, straight and round shape, easily spotted amongst its foliage. Purple Queen is known for its tender texture and rich taste. It magically changes to green as it is lightly cooked. (OP.)

One packet of about 150 seeds

  • Information
  • Beans are the mainstay of the kitchen garden: both easy and rewarding. Store-bought can't compare with home-grown Beans; modest toil and small Bean patches yield large returns. Bush Beans abhor cold, damp soils. Wait to sow until 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.

    Average seed life: 2-3 years.
