Royalty Purple Bush Bean

    Royalty Purple Bush Bean


    51 days. [1957] Has a natural blanching indicator. When prepared for freezing, the purple pods blanch to green after 2 minutes of boiling. Easy to pick - purple pods are easily visible against the green foliage. Plants have short runners and need either wide row spacing or a fence for climbing. 5 in. pods are slightly curved. Very meaty and flavorful, great for vegetable soup. Buff-colored seeds germinate well in cool soil. A small (28 g) packet has about 79 seeds.

    Good to start from seed in these months:

    North Florida: February-June, September 

    Central Florida: February-May, September

    South Florida: January-May, October
