Product Information

A high yielding variety of Dwarf French Bean Purple Teepee has attractive and colourful purple pods. Unusual among dwarf French beans Purple Teepee carries its pods above the main foliage.  This makes for easier picking and ensures improved cropping of long straight pods with little or no dirt splashing. Stringless when young the 6 inch pods are delicious eaten in salads or can be cooked in the conventional manner, when cooked in boiling water they turn a brilliant shade of emerald green. Most vegetable growers agree Purple Teepee has that intangible flavour or zing that only comes from purple podded Dwarf French Beans. Best when grown in a sunny, sheltered spot in well-drained soil with plenty of organic matter added. Plants should be kept well watered, especially during dry spells and start to mature approx 12 weeks after sowing. Dwarf French Bean Purple Teepee has been trialled by the National Institute of Agricultural Botany and has been recommended.
