Bean ‘Amethyst’

Phaseolus vulgaris

Open pollinated fancy bush bean with stunning deep purple pods.  An improved selection from ‘Royal Burgundy’. Pods are best harvested at 5-6″ and the plants will continually produce as pods are picked. Purple pods do turn green once cooked.




Beans are warm season vegetables that prefer fertile well drained soil. Vining types require support from a trellis, while bush types are self-supporting.
