This delicious bean grows on compact bushes about 2' tall, and is very prolific. Add this variety to your garden and you will thank yourself.
Keep soil moist but not soggy, and avoid watering the foliage. Beans produce their own nitrogen, and fertilizer is not needed if planted in rich soil. Smooth purple pods are 6" in length, and turn dark green after cooking. They are also good eaten raw in salads.
Matures in 60 days. For a continuous harvest, sow new plants every 7-14 days up to 60 days before first fall frost.
This variety does well in cool weather and is very disease resistant.
Royal Burgundy originated in New Hampshire in the early 1900's.
