Purple Dove

70 days — The bushes of 'Purple Dove' are a half-runner type variety but generally do not require support. The plants produce deep purple flowers and beautiful purple pods that are best picked before they reach about five inches in length before the seeds begin to develop. They have an excellent flavor, are primarily stringless, and turn green when cooked.

This is another of the many vegetable varieties developed by the late Robert Lobitz. Each packet contains one ounce, which is approximately 95 to 100 seeds. Very rare and in limited supply.

Planting Instructions:
Beans prefer well-drained, rich soil in a sunny location. Make sure you keep them well watered in the summer heat.

Beans are a tender vegetable and you should not plant them until all danger of frost has passed and the soil remains above 65ºF. Sow seeds 1-1½ inches deep, every two to three inches. Bush-type beans do not require support.

For seed saving, allow pods to remain on the plant until they are brittle and open easily. However, if you live in an area with a short growing season, harvest as close to dry as possible and finish drying indoors. Rain and freezing temps will damage beans.
