Bean, Dragon Tongue Snap
These dramatic beans always catch people's eye at the farmer's market, but it is the sweet flavor and juicy-crisp, non-fibrous texture that make them a favorite year after year. Heirloom from the 1900's has 8”, flat, creamy yellow pods with thin purple stripes (which disappear with cooking). Crisp pods stay tender and sweet even when very large. Impossible for commercial production, as the pods are so juicy that they wilt when shipped. We consider it the best-tasting bush bean. Heavy producer. Excellent raw.
