Product Description

The Royal Burgundy bean has a dark purple outside with a bright green inside! Royal Burgundy Bean is a bright, beautiful and delicious bush bean variety. It performs well when grown in traditional rows, but will also produce well when grown in containers or raised beds. The bright purple beans make this variety easy to harvest as the burgundy pods pop on the green foliage background. Royal Burgundy Bean plants have a bush growing habit and plants average 15-20″ tall. Pods are 5-6″ long with a crisp and delicious flavor. Pods are green on the inside which makes a nice color contrast when snapped. This variety is widely-adapted and will perform well in cooler and warmer planting zones. Beans should be picked while the pods still snap, and the beans have not filled the pod out completely. Beans get tough and stringy if allowed to grow too big. If beans are picked when they are ready, the plants will continue producing for several weeks. When harvesting, use two hands to hold the bean and pull it from the stem, yanking it off the stem with one hand can often damage the plant.
