Dragon Tongue Bean
Also called “Dragon Langerie.” 57 days. Perhaps our best multipurpose variety. Use its breathtaking 6-in. pods as a fresh snap, as a shell bean when mature, or as a dried bean when pods dry. Harvest snap beans when pods turn from light green to pale yellow with purple streaks. Shell beans are ready when streaks turn red. A horticultural type about 24 to 30-in. tall. Seeds are a mottled tan.
