65 day. A very pretty bean, green with small purple stripes. It grows very tall, over 8 feet, and the beans are easier to pick because the purple striping makes them stand out against the foliage.
Minimum of 40 seeds per packet.
Planting Depth: 1 inch
Plant Spacing: 2-6 inches
Row Spacing: 2-3 feet
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.

When picked young, these beans have a delicious, rich, almost buttery taste. Slightly sweet, tender, crisp. If you let them get too mature, they do develop a very noticeable "string," but you can remove it like any string bean. Hardy, fast grower, very productive. I'll grow these again!
