Organic Rattlesnake Pole Bean Seeds - Phaseolus vulgaris
Organic, Non-GMO, Open-Pollinated Rattlesnake Pole Bean Seeds
A beautiful heirloom named for the splashes of dark brown on its seeds resembling the markings of a rattlesnake. Don't worry this one won't bite! The green bean is just as beautiful having a deep green background with wonderful purple streaks. Great for hot areas. Vigorous vines grow up to 10' feet and produce high yields of stringless, tasty pods that reach 7" to 10" when mature. The versatile Rattlesnake can be used as a green snap bean, as a shelly, and makes a wonderful dry bean having a pinto type flavor. Plenty of culinary options with this one!
