Almost Black

While at the Farmer's Market this weekend I saw these string beans that almost appeared black. Have you ever tried them before? I might just have to pick some up next weekend.

Not quite but we as children we used to eat similar ones, they had a couple of white flakes.

I grew some a few years ago that were deep purple and when cooked they turn green. I think they tasted just like green ones from what I remember.

No I have not Randy, you will have to let us know if they taste similar to their green counterparts!

They are delicious Randy.

I grew this variety a couple of years back.
They're delicious.
And you're in for a surprise when you cook them.

I have never seen anything like them. I would be tempted to give them a try too.

I have never seen such a thing before.

I've never seen such a thing but a friend brought me some black tomatoes that she grew and they were tasty, sweet delights. Maybe the beans will be like that, Randy!

I've not ever seen them before but I would try them.

I have not, but then admittedly beans of whatever kind are not to my appetite.

What's the taste? Beany?

VP said...

I have seen black tomatoes, but never string beans!

Jack said...

Not me. You will have to tell us how they were.

Paul said...

Never seen these before... Love to get some seeds and try growing them though.

Kate said...

Oh, my! I cook with an eye toward color and the dark beans may be tasty but wouldn't look as good on a plate as the wonderful green beans.

j'ai jamais mange d'haricots noirs, mais j'aime cette couleur

In Mexico they use similar seedpods to dye wool in to black for rugs and so. I wonder if they are the same.
