i swapped annette, in nanaimo some seeds to compare with her own purple and green italian heirloom that she
has been growing. she might be good as an in country source if you want to try them. i was able to save a pound or two
of seed this year, so have plenty to spare.

How did Carminat turn out? I planted some and they look strong so far, just getting to the beginning of the vining time. I have some Tamara romano type I might try too.root_grow wrote: ↑Tue Dec 24, 2019 12:34 amI grew Blauhilde a few years ago, they were tasty, tender, not stringy. Now I'm tempted to grow them again next season. I already have some Carminat to try out.
I didn't enjoy the Purple Podded Poles at all, I thought they were tough and tasted like grass. I really want all beans to be like those delicate, rich French filet beans though...

Other purple podded pole beans are some long beans, the best one being the Thai purple podded long bean, which is the earliest long bean I've grown (almost as early as blauhilde), doesn't get hollow, like green long beans I've grown, and no problems with heat, like other purple pods tend to have. Chinese red noodle get even longer, before the seeds start to show (I've gotten some over 30"), but are more prone to rust, and don't begin producing until about 85 days from planting. Also resistant to heat, producing @over 100° before, though the heat seemed to hollow them some.
