I grow a lot of runner beans on tripods in whiskey barrels. Trionfo violetto is my favorite of the lavender flowered varieties, but it does not grow as tall as the red or or white flowered varieties. The beans are very good eating, however, and the lavender flowers very pretty.

I tried this romano-type pole bean last year and was very happy with the results. It produced long beautiful vines with gorgeous purple flowers. The beans are large, flattened, and bumpy, a deep purple color, with an unusually delicious flavor. Good raw, but even better cooked (they turn bright green when cooked). Texture was better if picked young, but even the older 8 inch ones were still nutty and quite tasty. I'm going to order this one again this year.
