A flavourful bright green bean with purple striations

Rattlesnake Pole Bean produces bright green pods with purple striations, resembling the pattern of a rattlesnake. This heirloom, open-pollinated variety is very prolific and can be harvested multiple times a week. Trellised vines grow to 25 cm tall with bean production from top to bottom. Pods are 15 to 20 cm long with exceptional flavor and texture for fresh eating. This variety does well for canning and freezing. Seeds are tan with dark stripes.
