Pole Snap Bean, Kew Blue (Organic)
Phaseolus vulgaris. Flat Purple Pods. 55-60 days.
Deep purple pods, stems and leaves. Semi-flat beans with excellent raw flavor. Thrives in cool, wet weather and germinates well in the cold spring ground. Pods set early and continuously up the vines. Seeds dry down quick before the rains come. One of our highest yielding pole beans, it was a staple crop during our time as fresh market farmers. Originally from the Kew Royal Botanic Gardens, we received this variety in 2007 from the Heritage Seed Library, in England.
