Velour Purple

Characteristics:  Standing out above all other French/filet type beans, Velour's royal, deep purple colour and equally rich, satisfying flavour make this the epitome of luxury in a vegetable. The slender, smooth, round pods are straight, growing about 5 1/2 inches long. Compact, disease-resistant bushes produce heavy crops of gorgeous, sumptuous, stringless beans over an extended harvest period. With its extra fine texture and taste, Velour makes a delightful fresh eating bean, and also freezes exceptionally well. When cooked, the purple color changes to brilliant green.
