Bush, 60 days. Dragon’s Tongue bean is an heirloom green bean that boasts zany and exciting color patterns with superb eating quality and impressive yields. This compelling combination makes it a must-have for market gardeners, and its exceptional quality has solidified it as a gourmet delicacy. This heirloom hails from the Netherlands, where it was developed in the 1800s. The productive bush plants are covered in pods that reach 6-7 inches in length; each stringless pod contains between 4-6 beans. The versatile pods are the most buttery, tender, fresh eating green beans. You can also allow them to mature into a plump and flavorful dry bean! The tender and superbly delicious pods are yellow with amazing purple streaks, enticing for markets. It also makes a tasty shelled bean. Be sure to explain to your customers that the lovely purple striping on the pods will fade when cooked!
