This trusted purple podded variety is a productive and long bearing favourite. A good choice to get a jump on the season when the soil is still on the cool side. Richly textured, crispy and meaty 6″ long pods have a delicious flavour whether eaten fresh or brought out from the freezer over the winter. When cooked for 2 minutes, the pods turn a bright green indicating the perfect blanching time for freezing! Brown Seed.
