description for "Beans: Phaseolus vulgaris 'Tricolor Pole'"

Cascading from their tall supports, 'Tricolor Pole' beans are sentinels of the abundant summer garden. 'Tricolor Pole' is a custom seed mix from Renee's Garden containing equal parts 'Blue Lake,' 'Yellow Pole Wax' and 'Purple Peacock' climbing beans. These vigorous pole beans twine up effortlessly and their vertical habit makes good use of limited garden space. These heavy bearing climbers reliably produce extended heavy harvests of delicious long gold, green and burgundy pods. The generous bounty of juicy tender pods has that sweet and meaty bean flavor every cook loves in the summer kitchen. Pick beans frequently to encourage plants to continue making new blossoms and pods. For best eating, harvest beans when they are slender and before the seeds inside the pods have filled out. Enjoy tender-crisp beans quickly steamed or sauteed to serve hot, or toss all three colors in an herbal vinaigrette. Chopped dill, parsley or chives are great herbal accents for garden fresh beans. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
