Parfree's Dragon Tongue

Colin Parfree obtained this variety from his neighbour, who had in turn been given them by a friend who travelled extensively in China, where they are thought to have originated.

Compact, sturdy plants produce green pods with thin, deep violet stripes.

An easy care, easy grow bean that could be used in pots for decorative purposes.

The young pods are tender and tasty, and the dried beans have excellent flavour.
