Purple Podded Pole Snap Bean
Snap Bean (Pole)
(Phaseolus vulgaris) Heirloom variety rediscovered by Henry Fields in the 1930's. Six-foot vines produce buckets of tender 5-7" purple snap beans. If kept picked, plants will continue to produce right up until frost. Lovely purple beans are easy to spot on the plant and have a built-in blanch indicator—they turn green when cooked! 68 days to harvest. 25 seeds/pkt.
CULTURE: After danger of frost has passed, sow seeds 4-6" apart, 1" deep in rows 24-36" apart. Plants require trellising. Under ideal conditions, germination will occur in 7-10 days. For highest yield, harvest regularly. Avoid touching plants while leaves are wet as this can spread disease.
These are hands-down the best green beans we’ve ever grown. Well, purple. Even when they’re long, they’re tender and they just keep coming. I’ve never tried these before, nor head I tried thresh seed. But I’m sold and I’m about to order more.
Seeds germinated quickly. Growing very quickly on trellis. Even through dry spell.
All seeds germinated! Growing well, love the colors already. Can't wait to watch them grow.
I had 100% germination rate. Getting my first beans now and they are beautiful. I will buy these beans from this company again!
