This bean can grow as tall as your Garden and produces bean pods that are about six inches long. As your pods mature, they develop purple and white stripes and grow throughout the green bushy leaves.
This is our premier bean, selected for your garden. It should be placed on the side of your garden so it can trellise up your levels. This allows it to get bushy and for you to harvest fresh beans regularly.
Bean Dragon's Tongue Story
Phaseolus vulgaris, Dragon's tongue bean, was first cultivated in the 18th century in the Netherlands. These farmers were looking for a sweet waxy bean that is delicious and easy to grow. This is exactly why we have selected this Dutch heirloom variety for your garden. They are finger lengthened beans with a calico coloring of lavender and cream. These beans act like two beans in one. It is an early snap bean that you can harvest young and enjoy their unique purple and white striped shells. You can also let them mature and get a shelling bean. No matter if you enjoy these beans raw or cooked, or early or mature this is a perfect staple for your garden, just like it was for Dutch.
