I grew these runner beans this year after a friend described them as “the best runner beans they had ever grown”. With a recommendation like that, who wouldn’t want to try them?
I grew purple teepee attracted by the idea of having wonderful purple beans easy to see above the foliage. This was for both looks with the wonderful colour contrast between purple and green but also ease of harvesting I’ve always found purple beans hard to see against the earth.
I first tried tepee beans attracted by the idea of having plants that proudly display their beans on top of the foliage, rather than rooting around under the leaves to find them and less chance of dirt splash back.
