These purple pole beans beat all the others. They were fast out of the gate, very prolific, and were very long, 8-10"! Great beany flavor, kept a long time in the refrigerator, and because each bean was so long, the overall haul was huge. Vines ran pretty rampant, but were good sports when they reached the top of my 6.5' trellis, and were content to flop over and start again. New member of my "grow every year" club. Also did not succumb to blight like other varieties in 2017.
