Bean Pole Trionfo Violetto HEIRLOOM Seeds

Phaseolus vulgaris

Item #0214

75 days. Trionfo violetto translates to “purple triumph”, and this Italian heirloom will surely win you over with its thin, crisp, flavorful purple pods. Highly ornamental plants have abundant lavender flowers that bloom against lush green leaves with purple veins and stems. Like other purple beans, the pods magically turn green when cooked! Plants are very productive; you’ll be harvesting beans until late summer.

This packet sows 2 small or 1 large teepee. See inside for instructions on how to build a bean teepee.

Days to Emerge:
10 days

Seed Depth:
1"

Seed Spacing:
2 seeds every
4" to 6"

Row Spacing:
3' - 4'

Thinning:
When 1" tall,
thin to 1 every
4" - 6"


When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after average last frost and when temperatures are warm. NOTE: In very hot summer areas such as the South and Southwest, sow in March for June harvest, and August for late September harvest.

When to start inside: Not recommended.

Harvesting: Snap beans are ready to pick when the pod “snaps” or breaks in half cleanly. This is when seeds have just begun to form and the pods are 6" - 8" long. Hold stem with one hand, and the pod with the other hand to avoid pulling off branches which may continue to produce. At season’s end, plants are great compost material if not diseased.
