Amethyst French Bean Seeds

[60 days] A compact, dwarf bean with slender pods that reach up to 15cm (6") long, Amethyst provides a bounty of purple, stringless beans over a long picking season. Delicious both raw and cooked, this variety seems to produce forever. Being a dwarf variety, they work well in both container gardens and raised beds, and with their mauve flowers and amethyst-coloured pods, they’re honestly beautiful enough as an ornamental. Like all French beans, they freeze well, too.
