Purple Pod Pole Bean ( 70 days, Heirloom)

2

 

Heirloom

Easily seen, vivid purple pods will beckon you to pluck them for a quick nibble. Discover why this heirloom, that was found in an 1930’s Ozark garden, was saved and maintained and still available for us to grow in our gardens today. The beans are richly flavored and stringless, plus it is an attractive plant with purple vines and pretty bi colored flowers. 50 seeds

 

PLANTING:

Germation time- 4-10 Days

Outside- Bush type: 1” deep and 4-6” apart with soil temperatures above 60 degrees and after the last frost. Planting under 60 degrees results in poor germination. Pole type: Plant 1” deep and 3- 4” apart for trellis/pole growth. Drying type: 1” deep and 5-6” apart. Leave beans on the plant until the leaves are falling and pods are dry and withered

Harvest- Before the seeds bulge and beans snap easily. Pick continually to prolong production.

Tips- Water well during hot dry period and do not over fertilize which results in a surplus of foliage and low, delayed pod growth. Adding inoculant at planting time aids in a larger harvest and more robust plants. Plant seeds every 2-3 weeks for continual harvest throughout the summer.

Beautiful and delicious

Plants grew very well up a trellis. We had a difficult summer with times of drought and also times of abundant rain. The beans are delicious! I'll definitely grow them again.

seeds are producing plants

how can one review seeds until they produce a crop? I guess at this time they are as advertised because the plants are growing
