Dow Purple Pod Bean
Phaseolus vulgaris 'Dow Purple Pod'
Duration: Annual
When to Sow: Spring Ease of Germination: Easy
This heirloom was once considered endangered because only a few families in the Great Lakes region were growing it. Thankfully it was saved from probable extinction. It is a vigorous pole bean that grows up to 1.8m/6ft high. Its beautiful purple pods, 18-20cm/7-8" long, are very tender, and the white seeds inside are especially tasty with a strong "bean" flavour. When cooked, the pods turn green, which is fun for kids to watch but not so easy for moms and dads to explain! Purple flowers are lovely too. 80 days.
