  1. Joe

    This variety of beans is truly remarkable changing color from purple to green right before your eyes.

    I grew a few of these plants last year and was very pleased with them. Every seed germinated and its a fun variety to grow. I will be planting all I have remaining this year for sure.

    Very happy with these beans. Easy to pick since the beans are very visible. Also the bugs seem to leave them alone. Perhaps the purple color confuses them? The color changes to green when cooked. They taste just like green beans ☺.

    Very prolific variety. All of the seeds germinated and gave me crops during the late summer/early fall. I highly recommend them! They grew well in containers.

  5. Pawat Seritrakul

    Healthy productive yet small and bushy plant. I started them late but still had a good harvest.

    My first experience with purple beans and they were super hardy and prolific! I snuck a few in my landscaping for added color and they were beautiful. Great conversation starter with giving them away! I am definitely ordering several more packages as they were delicious

    Favorite bean! They were truly a beautiful addition!

    One of my favorite seeds from MI gardener! I love these beautiful beans and I am growing a pot in my house as well as many outside. I will be saving seed from these!!! very fun to have the pretty purple color even though they turn green when cooked

    We loved these, as our 1 yr old and 3 year old picked them and loved how they changed colors when cooked. They taste great without strings. I like mixing them with other colors too (yellow & green) and they look pretty when harvesting.

    This was the first not green string bean I have ever grown. Very prolific, and interesting how it changes color from purple to green right before your eyes.

    100% Germination rate. Great raw or cooked!

    Planted these and painted pony. These out produced 10 to 1. Gonna save some seed and plant in every garden from now on.

    I nice bean with a striking dark color. In a blind taste test, though, I can’t distinguish them from many other bush beans. They are good and completely stringless. They turn a dark green when cooked.

    Great germination rate, and such a prolific plant. Towards the end of the season it was hard to keep up with the harvesting, but beans were easy to spot and harvest due to their color. For anyone curious about the flavor, these taste just like any other green beans in my opinion.

    An absolutely wonderful product. Plant bushed out to about 2′ x 2′ but it produced beans for months. Averaging about 4 cups every other day. Excellent taste but I personally would not freezing as they take on a tough nature. Grown in 12 inches of garden gold compost laid in place over leaf litter and cardboard the prior fall.

    Picked these up to add color to the garden to make my niece more excited to run around in the “Jungle” as she calls it. She has consistently run to these every day to see if more are ready to pick! Definitely should pick these up if you love to see smiles.

    100% germination and beautiful. No strings. Great tasting bean. I love having a color variety! Currently growing these, Landreth, Cherokee Wax, and Red Swan.

    These beans are a definite win for us! They were surprisingly prolific, seemed to be a bit earlier harvest (planted 5 varieties of beans and they were one of the first to produce), and the great part is their visibility! Not all pods were perfect burgundy-purple but they were so much easier to see and pick! Would be great for someone who has eyesight problems. The stems are darker of course but they are beautiful plants and still easier to see the beans than typical green beans.

    Such a pretty plant with purple flowers. The beans too were beautiful and quite tasty. I had to compete for them because the neighborhood deer found them and liked them too. But with the help if a motion detector sprinkler, I got more than they did.

    I have grown the Royal Burgundy bean for years and years. It is a true standby for me. Love the purple color.

    I LOVE these beans! Every seeds germinated. I amended the soil with a very small amount of bone meal before planting (1/2 c. for every 10ft row) and these seemed to grow and produce very prolifically. My kids loved these as well and had such a fun time gathering all of them. I highly recommend this variety! The taste is wonderful as well- my favorite “green” bean!
