"Dragon Lingerie" Beans

"Dragon Lingerie" Beans
Every year I try to grow one unique variety of either bush beans or pole beans - this year I grew the "Dragon Lingerie" bean.  I'm not quite sure why the seed company gave these original beans that name - maybe the purple lines look like lace and I guess the strange formations of these beans are "dragon-esque".  They were fun to grow but this was the first and last year for these beans in my garden.  They were just not good producers......now we did have a drought this year but I still was not very impressed with the quantity and the taste quality.

  1. These look like what we used to call October beans (don't know why they were called that as they came in way before October).

  2. They do look a little anaemic, don't they? good for you, experimenting like this! Me - I like the traditional green ones! Not adventurous in the least, I fear!

  3. Never heard of them! They are very interesting-looking, though!

  4. they are delicious and creamy. they are less "green: tasting than string beans. i'm disappointed to hear that they are not good producers. where did you ge tthe seeds?

    1. I think they are from "Pinetree" seeds - a catalog. Thanks for stopping by.


Please feel free to leave comments or questions (no question is ever stupid) - They will show up on the blog once I have read through them.
Thank You.
