Trionfo Violetto' translates to "purple triumph", and this Italian heirloom will surely win you over with its thin, crisp, flavorful purple pods. Highly ornamental, plants climb 6'–8', and have abundant lavender flowers that bloom against lush green leaves with purple veins and stems; you'll be harvesting beans until late summer. Like other purple beans, the pods magically turn green when cooked!

Botanical Name: Phaseolus vulgaris

Days to Maturity: 64–75 days

Family: Fabaceae

Native: Mexico and South America

Hardiness: Frost-sensitive annual

Plant Dimensions: 6'–8' vigorous vines

Variety Information: 6"–8" long, thin, deep purple, stringless when young, oval-round pods with tan seeds. Beans turn green when cooked.

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; bean seedlings are sensitive to root disturbance.

Days to Emerge: 6–12 days

Seed Depth: 1"

Seed Spacing: 1 seed every 6"

Row Spacing: 36"

Thinning: Not required

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

I just love these climbing purple beans, and so does everyone who tries them. Their gorgeous color and impressive size, and earthy-nutty flavor, have made them my favorite bean. (But honestly, I would grow them just for their violet flowers.)

I decided to try something different in the garden this year and ordered Trionfo Violetto seeds for my pole bean garden. The results have been amazing, with huge vines producing abundant fruit that is a real hit in the kitchen. The beans are nice to look at and very tasty for cooking, firm and full of flavor.
