Description
From Wikipedia:

The rattlesnake bean is an heirloom cultivar of pole bean (Phaseolus vulgaris). The pods are 6 to 8-inches long with purple markings, and the seeds are light brown with brown markings, still visible after cooking. They are named for the snake-like manner in which their pods coil around the vine.[1]

Rattlesnake beans favour hot weather such as in American Southeast and mid-Atlantic, though they are easy to grow elsewhere as well. They have an average to long time from germination to harvest, ranging from 60 to 90 days.[2] They should be harvested frequently for increased yields. Plant grows up to ten feet, producing purple flowers before the pods.[3][4]

As fresh snap beans, they are sweet-tasting.[2] Cooked dry beans have an intense flavour that combines well with strong spices, making them suitable for chili con carne.[5]

Grow Notes
Plant in late Spring or early Summer. Sow directly into a rich soil and keep mulched to improve water retention. When sowing do not allow soil to get too wet as beans can rot.
