Even darker than Royal Burgundy, Purple Queen bush bean produces slightly curved, round, stringless pods about 15cm (6″) long. Harvest the abundant pods when they are pencil-thick. This variety is unusual for its long productive season. Though determinate, and very much a bush bean at only 45cm (18″) tall, the plants produce over a long period if kept picked. When cooked, the dark purple beans turn an attractive dark green. They were the number one choice for flavour in our field trials, with a crisp texture both raw and cooked.
Matures in 52 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
