Great productive beans. In fact these have out-produced nearly every other variety for me. Pods have a very strong bean flavor - great texture, and freeze well. Can use for dried beans too. Only thing is the name, which is very misleading. The only purple in the bean are the seeds (beans) when immature are sort of purple. The pods are green, and the dried beans are tan, light brown, with some reddish brown (which could be interpreted as purple?) splashed on and mixed in (at least to my eyes!).

Quote From nativeseeds.org:

Yoeme Purple String Bean This prolific pole bean
from the Pascua Yaqui Tribe of the Southwest U.S. and
northwest Mexico is highly drought-resistant and heat-tolerant.
The plant is a vigorous climber that produces
delicate white flowers. The tasty green beans are ready to
eat in late August and are purple on beige when dried.
