Annie’s Rainbow Beans (Phaseolus vulgaris)
Three vivid varieties in the colors of a Mardi Gras flag! The Royal Burgundy and Golden Wax bush beans are easy to spot against their green leaves, while the Provider produces a more traditional, shamrock-colored pod. Reliable and easy to grow, these crisp heirlooms stand up well to canning.

I ordered these last year for the first time. Absolutely loved the pretty colors on the fresh beans but loved the taste of all of them together even better. In the past, I had typically just grown blue lake beans but I will continue with these beans as I just thought they had more flavor. I picked some for my 91 year old father who has gardened every year of his life and he thought they were the best he had eaten.
These were very easy to grow and produced enough beans to feed 2 families! Will always keep these around!
I have never grown such tastey verbs and they produced a ton!!
I ordered is sampler pack of beans this year and they produced very well! I planted them a little closer together than recommended and they still thrived. The Royal Burgundy were my favorite, but produced the fewest beans overall - but still impressive. I had at least 1 lbs of beans a week for a few weeks. Now, things are tapering off a bit. Very impressed. Highly recommended.
I ordered these early this year and have been pleasantly overrun with beans! They are good producers, and do well even when placed a little too close together. Not to mention all the "ooohs" and "aaaahs" I get when someone walks through my garden. They're both practical and beautiful - what more could a girl ask for?
