This is the first review I've written about seeds because these have just amazed me week after week. I planted these beans at the end of May and again 2 weeks later (in Maine, Zone 5b) at first I thought they wouldn't produce much. I almost gave up on them and wasnt checking them as regularly as I should have. Before I knew it I had so many overgrown pods! They just produced later than I expected and I kept checking back and finding more and more! I harvested a large batch of them in the beginning of October and just pulled the plants today as we got our first hard frost last night. Even the frost didnt seem to affect them. Will definitely grow these again next year!

Well, it’s now November, and we baked a casserole dish of frozen cut purple king beans that I froze in August. Mixed in a bit of olive oil, onion powder, garlic powder, oregano and a touch of salt. WOW! These beans are great freezers!

These are crazily prolific for bush beans! I made the mistake of using the whole packet at once in a wide bed double row. Next year I'll do a single row, mulch well and stagger plant, unless I decide to freeze a lot of them (which I'll be doing tomorrow!). Gorgeous purple. This may be the only source, as other "purple king" beans seem to be pole beans.
