Amethyst Purple Filet Bean

70 days. Pretty purple flowers metamorphose into incredible violet-colored, long, slender, stringless pods. Crunchy and ever-so pretty served raw with dips and other crudites, gourmet Amethyst Purple is tender and richly flavored when lightly steamed or sauteed in butter. Its compact plants are perfect for containers and raised beds. (OP.)

  • 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. To satisfy zee french in you, here are five haricots verts or ultra-slim filet types, difficult to find at the market and coveted by chefs everywhere. 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.
