Bean "Purple King Climbing" 20 Seeds

Phaseolus vulgaris

Purple King is a climbing bean that produces attractive oval purple string beans that grow up to 18cm long. Great for home gardeners. Seeds are brown colour, and the plant produces purple flowers. The variety is very productive. The purple pods turn green when cooked.

Grow beans up fences, trellis, sweet corn, trees. Almost anywhere can be 'vertically productive'.

Keep well watered and pick regularly to encourage new flowers. Watch out for snails, as they will eat through the stems near ground level, and will completely eat newly sprouted beans. If you have nice new beans plants one day, and none the next, then it is probably slugs or snails.
