Proven Winners

This bean is a tasty heirloom that’s fun to grow!
These bright purple streaked yellow bush beans are delightfully delicious. Pick the tender young, stringless pods to eat fresh or let them mature a little longer to use as shelled beans. The more you harvest, the higher the yield for this 24-30” tall heirloom variety. Like magic, the purple coloring disappears when cooked.
