Very Productive

These are fantastic! Turn from dark red to deep purple when cooked - anthocyanins!. Use in any green bean recipe and particularly tasty sauteed aisian style, even add raw to smoothies. Pick while thin MUST pick daily/huge quantities, before beans swell in the pod because they get spongy after that - can shell and use the mature dried pods you missed as small cowpea substitute. The red color makes it easier to differentiate bean from vine stems than with the green variety. In wet summers, watch for Rust and spray regularly with Neem oil before it spreads - in late evening after bees have gone home - bee-safe when dry. Ants hang out on flowers and pods, but do no damage ?polllinate?. pods grow in pairs with growing tip in-between - twist pods off carefully to avoid damaging tip so next batch can develop. Must be trellised
