Description

The Rattlesnake Pole Bean is as delicious as it is beautiful. Long purple-and-green streaked pods dangle from strong 10' vines, with streaked beige beans inside. Like its namesnake, it’s not bothered by heat, humidity, or drought. If you hear it rattle, it has probably dried on the vine. Grow alongside other streaked beans, like Tongue of Fire and Borlotti.
