Description

Bean - Royalty Purple Pod - Phaseolus vulgaris

Tender Annual Bush. Heirloom. Purple bushes with short runners and purple flowers. Bright-purple stringless 5"-6" pods cook to dark green. Buff colored seeds germinate in cold, wet soil. Bred by E.M. Meader at the University of New Hampshire and introduced in 1957.

Did You Know? Bean common mosaic virus resistant and avoided by Mexican bean beetles.

Soil & Water: Legumes like well-drained soil rich in organic matter and a moderate amount of nutrients. Water lightly at planting, medium at flowering, and heavily throughout harvest time. Avoid overhead watering which can promote disease.

Planting & Growing: Start indoors in short-season climates, or seed directly once soils have reached at least 65°F, preferably after the last frost. Make small, successive plantings every 10 days for a continuous harvest.

Harvesting & Storage: Bush beans will produce all of their fruit over a few weeks' time. For best flavor, harvest the pods when they reach 1/2" in diameter regardless of their length, or leave the pods on the plant until they have completely dried. Store dry, shelled beans in an airtight container.

Fantastic Producer of Tasty Beans

These beans germinate well, climb most anything (I use upside-down rusted tomato cages) and produce smooth purple pods. Here it is mid-June and I am harvesting enough beans for a meal for two every third day! Highly recommended.

You can eat these right off the vine

These are delicious. This is the second year we've grown them and this variety renders an outstanding yield. Amusingly, the purple color makes them a lot easier to spot and harvest compared to their green counterparts. This variety can be plucked off the vine and eaten raw. They're sweet and tender.
