Royal Burgundy Bush Bean Seeds


4.5 out of 5 stars
(6 reviews)
'Royal Burgundy', fresh from your garden, has delicious purple pods that are easily found among the backdrop of green foliage. It grows better than other varieties in cool weather and is unlikely to be challenged by bean beetle. A good container variety. Disease resistant.

Botanical Name: Phaseolus vulgaris

Days to Maturity: 55 days

Family: Fabaceae

Native: Mexico and South America

Hardiness: Frost-sensitive annual

Plant Dimensions: 15"–20" tall, compact bush

Variety Information: 5"–6" long, round, bright violet-purple pods with buff-colored seeds, held above ground on upper part of plant. Resistant to white mold and bean common mosaic viruses 1 and NY15.

Type: Snap bean

When to Sow Outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 65°F, ideally 70°–85°F. Successive Sowings: Every 7 to 14 days up to 80 days before your average first fall frost date. NOTE: In very hot summer areas, skip sowing as high heat approaches; temperatures consistently above 90°F will prevent beans from forming.

When to Start Inside: Not recommended.

Days to Emerge: 6–12 days

Seed Depth: 1"

Seed Spacing: 1 seeds every 4" to 6"

Row Spacing: 24"

Thinning: Not required

Harvesting: Snap beans are ready to pick when the pod "snaps" or breaks in half cleanly. This is when the seeds have just begun to form and the pods are several inches long (depending on the variety). Hold the stem with one hand, and the pod with the other hand to avoid pulling off branches, which will continue to produce. At season's end, plants are great compost material if they are disease-free.

Because bush beans were developed from pole beans (for condensed and easier harvests), sometimes they can revert to some of the traits of their predecessors by stretching and getting a little lanky before settling into more of a compact bush habit. Thus, why your bush bean appears to be a pole bean.

Purple Power

4 out of 5 stars Jul 20, 2018
These lovely , organic royal burgundy bush bean seeds never disappoint. They pop up in a week and about four weeks later, they provide delicious beans that keep producing. Something about the purple color turning green when cooked is part of the whole experience from planting to plate. I have used them with children's garden classes and for gardening with seniors because these seeds are so reliable, All in all, these purple green beans are deliciously magic!

I've grown these two years in a row, and you can bet I'll plant them again next year. They are reliable producers and they are really pretty. They neighbors love getting a bag of them from me.

Shade bean

These beautiful beans really struggled. However I have high temperatures here and these are a shade bean. I will try them again in a different location, beautiful plant and tasty bean. I should have read more info about these before purchasing.

Owner Response: Hi Karen, Like most vegetables, these beans need full sun (6 or more hours). In shady conditions, you can expect slower and lower productions. Happy gardening!
