70 days to snap bean Phaseolus vulgaris

HEIRLOOM We’ve loved this heirloom for decades though the French have loved it for centuries, saving the seeds of these exquisitely sweet and nutty, juicy-crisp beans for all generations to come. Her long, slender pods are vivid burgundy and thinner than a pencil, almost always the first pole bean we savor each season! Organic Trionfo Violetto Pole Snap Bean’s deep purple stems, leaf veins and rich lavender flowers, often accompanied by hummingbirds, contrast gorgeously with her heart-shaped and deep green foliage, as well.

    I’ve grown a lot of beans (nine varieties in the 2021 season alone) and this one is top-flight. Earliest bean to pop out of the ground, fast to grow, flower, and set pods, and produced heavily over a very long season if kept well picked. Pods are tender and can get quite long–nearly a foot (!) though most are more in the range of 6 inches. Dark purple pigment disappears on cooking leaving bright green beans. If you’re going to grow only one bean in a home garden, this one is a pretty good choice. Very pleased with this seed stock.

    Beautiful vines and beautiful fruit! I planted these late in zone 6b, and we had a record hot and dry summer (no surprise there, right?). The vines did terrific, but no fruit, which I didn’t expect given the conditions. Still, I left them because the hummingbirds loved the sweet, lavender blossoms. But then, come late August, when the heat wave finally broke and we got some rain, it immediately put on big, healthy pods! I’m leaving a few of my best producers for seed for next year, and vow to myself to start earlier so I can get an early crop AND a late one! So pretty and so hearty.
