It is the best purple bean for flavour and is completely stringless. The 15cm long purple pods keep their colour when lightly steamed or stir-fried.
Beautiful oval shape beige seeds in a dark purple, smooth, straight and long 13-15 cm (5-6â) pod. Stringless. High resistance to Bean Common Mosaic. Dwarf Bush habit. Very popular in soups and salads. Has a creamy texture and also good in salsa.
Drop beans into boiling salted water, cook 3 minutes or until tender. Drain and rinse. Mix together 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 2 minced garlic cloves, juice from 1 lemon and 1 large finely chopped roasted red pepper. Season with a pinch of cayenne pepper. Serve on the side or drizzled over cooked beans.
