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 climb 6'–8', and have abundant lavender flowers that bloom against lush green leaves with purple veins and stems; you'll be harvesting beans until late summer. Like other purple beans, the pods magically turn green when cooked!
Variety Info6"–8" long, thin, deep purple, stringless when young, oval-round pods with tan seeds. Beans turn green when cooked.
Not recommended; bean seedlings are sensitive to root disturbance.
RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 65°F, ideally 70°–85°F. Successive Sowings: Every 7 to 14 days up to 80 days before your average first fall frost date. NOTE: In very hot summer areas, skip sowing as high heat approaches; temperatures consistently above 90°F will prevent beans from forming.
