55 days from direct-sowing. The most exciting new gourmet bean of the season is this dramatic electric purple variety from France! Each long, slender pod is less than ⅓inch in diameter, yet is packed with succulent texture and delectable flavor. Certain to be the most exciting thing on the plate, Velour deserves top billing in your garden!

These straight, slender pods reach 5 to 6 inches long, beautifully tapered and packed with nutritious seeds. The color is absolutely shocking -- a rich royal purple so bright you expect it to glow! But the texture and flavor are even better: succulent, rich, and delicious!

Velour is a bush-habit plant, very heavy-bearing over a long season. The plant itself is compact, yet it sets plenty of scrumptious beans. As you might expect, picking the beans promptly is the guarantee of the freshest, most tender pods. Steam or sauté them lightly, or even freeze them for later use. They stand up well to storage!

Velour is absolutely stringless. The plant is resistant to CBM virus and halo blight, and grows vigorously from direct-sowing in spring when the soil has warmed. Be sure to plow the plant under the soil once the harvest has finished; as a legume, it is a valuable source of nutrition for your soil. You simply can't go wrong with this exciting new French Bean! Order early! Pkt is 2 oz (150 seeds).
