Dragon's Tongue Bean - Art Seed Packs


Although it sounds frightening, there is nothing scaly, ferocious, or fire-breathing about this bean. The dragon has been tamed. The purple-streaked pods are tender, buttery, and smooth, with a palate-friendly flavor. It just looks ferocious, with its mottled exterior and its intimidating abundance. But, like all sheepish dragons, this one just wants to be accepted and loved. That's not hard to do: the flavor and beauty of this variety are as easy to adore as a sloppy friendly dragon lick.

These bush habit plants produce stringless purple-striped wax beans that are delicious for fresh eating and make great dry beans for soup.

About Art Seed Packs: Each year, Hudson Valley Seeds commissions contemporary artists from around the United States to tell the story of a particular seed variety. That art and those seeds combine to create an Art Pack, a unique celebration of the diverse stories of seeds and their stewards.
