These beans are prolific, beautiful and tasty too! The green pods quickly fill with beans then turn a purple/blue color as they bulge with beans.
We found these beautiful beans at Roots Organic stand, and they are a new (heirloom) offering. Also they can tomatoes from their harvest aptly named, "Summer In a Bottle".
