Royal Burgundy Bush Bean (51 days)


Germ 4-10 days
Grows very well under cool conditions with strong, tall, purple-stemmed plants producing an abundance of pretty lavender flowers and clusters of round, straight 6” beans. Eaten raw, they are dark purple, very juicy and crunchy with great flavor. They acquire a deep green color when cooked, much more dramatic than most green varieties. 150 seeds



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.

Best beans!

Royal Burgundy beans have been a favorite of ours for many years, always purchased from Pinetree. We love the easy picking, since the beans contrast well with the green leaves on the plant, and they are delicous cooked fresh, turning green when cooked, and keep well canned. They are a great bean for northern MN.

Best testing bean!

This bean is a mainstay in my garden. And I have a hard time finding it anywhere but Pinetree Seeds. It's a great producer and my kids LOVE them. The bean area in my garden gets bigger each year.

Great producer

Great producer, and good looking crop. I have canned these, and they store well. Delicious cooked, with a small bit of Mrs. (store bought non-salt seasoning) seasoning, and they are wonderful to eat. P.S., my dog loves these, too!

Easy to grow and abundant

I have grown these for years and they always produce. I, also, run a school garden and the kids are very excited that these are ready to harvest so early. Plant throughout the season so you have fresh into the fall.
