60 Days. This bean is absolutely gorgeous! Violet-purple outside and bright green inside, it’s fun for kids to grow and has a great flavour. Pods are 6 inches long and turn green after cooking, providing a built-in blanching indicator. Upright, 24 inch tall plants hold their pencil-shaped pods off the ground. Royal Burgundy grows exceptionally well under cool conditions. Buck skin colored seeds. Awesome bean flavour!
