    The Rattlesnake bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) is an heirloom cultivar of pole bean. Here are some details about this flavorful and attractive bean:



    The pods of Rattlesnake beans are 6 to 8 inches long and have purple markings. The seeds are light brown with brown markings, which remain visible even after cooking. They are named for the snake-like manner in which their pods coil around the vine.


    Growing Tips

    Rattlesnake beans are easy to grow and thrive in hot weather. They favor regions like the American Southeast and mid-Atlantic, but they can be grown elsewhere too. The plant grows up to ten feet, producing purple flowers before the pods. As fresh snap beans, they are sweet-tasting. When cooked as dry beans, they have an intense flavor that pairs well with strong spices, making them suitable for dishes like chili con carne.



    Enjoy Rattlesnake beans fresh in salads, stir-fries, or as a side dish. When mature, they can be used as dry beans in soups and stews.


    Whether you’re growing them for their striking appearance or their delicious taste, Rattlesnake beans are a delightful addition to your garden!
