Phaseolus vulgaris (67 days) Delicious, full-flavored, stunning, long and slender, French-style 7-10” purple pole bean. An Italian heirloom, this bean does double-duty as a hit in the kitchen, while putting on an ornamental display with gorgeous violet flowers against bright green leaves and purple stems. The very productive 6-8' vines provide an abundant harvest ‘til late summer; a staple crop. Striking in a fresh bean salad along-side green and yellow beans. Like other purple beans, they magically turn green when cooked.
