Hi Im looking for a green bean that my mom calls purple tips. Has anyone ever heard of it :?: I am thinking it has another name but not for sure. That is the best green bean i have ever ate. :!: The hule is green with a purple tip on the end that hangs away from the vine, :arrow: This bean is a pole bean. The bean is white.

I have not heard of this bean but, try doing a search under google for Heirloom Beans.

If you live in Canada, I can send you a bunch of heirloom seed distributors websites, if you live in another country, unfortunately you'll have to do the searching yourself.

I have not heard of that one. I did a Google search and came up with purple beans, but not "Purple tipped". Good luck in your quest.
