Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars
We first tried these beans last year and they quickly became one of our family favorites. These produce tons of tender buttery flavored purple beans. Be aware though that when you cook the purple pods they will turn green so when you cook or can them they lose most of the beautiful color.
Our public library seed library users are looking forward to seeing how Red Swan does in our climate in central and eastern Kentucky. We always like to have a red or purple-podded bean in our seed library, and this year we're hoping that Red Swan makes a lot of folks happy! We're also trialling Kentucky Dreamer for those folks who love Kentucky Wonder but want the relative ease and convenience of bush beans.
