A vigorous sprouter that grows well in cool conditions, its pretty purple flowers keep blooming to provide a longer harvest than most other bush beans. Dark purple 13cm (5") pods are held off the ground by strong, upright plants. The pods turn green after cooking. Royal Burgundy bush bean seeds are buff coloured. The bushes are vigorous with erect growth and reach 38-52cm (15-20") in height. Royal Burgundy is resistant to bean beetles, and was developed at the University of New Hampshire. It grows extremely well in coastal gardens and areas that cool down at night.
