We've settled on this one as our bean of choice the past few years. Long purple pods that turn green upon cooking. We grow them on teepees made from tree prunings. By mid-summer, the two teepees have grown together into one large monstrosity. We've found that we have to harvest the beans when they're still thin and young, for best texture and flavor.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
