Also known as Dragon Langerie and Merveille de Piemente, these flashy beans are fiber-rich and full of antioxidants for your digestive health and general well-being. Additionally, these legumes are nitrogen-fixing and will collect nitrogen from the air and return it to the soil for future crops. This bush-type plant will grow to about 24-30" tall with 6-7" long pods. Seed pods will be a greenish-yellow color and have bright purple striping; the seeds themselves will be tan with speckles. You can enjoy the purples on your plate when eating this bean raw, but the color will disappear upon cooking. A marvelously versatile bean with fabulous flavor, this plant is equally delicious eaten raw, as a shelled bean or as a dried bean. Try them as pickles, sautéed in olive oil or battered and dipped in tempura. These beans are sure to please!
