55 day. Royal Burgundy beans are nice and straight and round. They are easy to pick because the dark beans stand out against the green foliage. The beans are really firm and crisp, and are a good choice for canning or for those who like firm beans. Deep purple when raw, they cook up dark green.
Minimum of 80 seeds per packet.
Planting Depth: 1 inch

Direct seed after last danger of frost has passed in full sun. Beans need soil temperatures between 75-85 degrees F to sprout. Make sure to check your nighttime temperatures too. They will not sprout if soil temperatures are below 60 degrees F.

This is my 2nd favorite bean i grow in my garden. Flavor is vary full
I'm still at the growing stage, but out of 8 seeds planted I've only gotten 4 to germinate. This is pretty sad. My other variety of bush beans have all germinated when planted.
I love it, my daughter loves it because it looks cool, changes color when you cook it and tastes great. It keeps us stocked all summer long.
These beans are incredibly prolific, are beautiful in the garden and delicious on the plate. They are lovely freshly steamed or sauteed, and also can very well. We bought the rainbow bean mix, and of the 4 these are our very favorite.
