Trionfo Violetto’ translates to “purple triumph”, and this Italian heirloom will surely win you over with its thin, crisp, flavorful purple pods. Highly ornamental, vigorous plants climb 6’–8′, and have abundant lavender flowers that bloom against lush green leaves with purple veins and stems; you’ll be harvesting beans until late summer. Like other purple beans, the pods magically turn green when cooked! Botanical Interest’s® Trionfo Violetto Pole Bean Seeds have been verified by The Non-GMO Project.
This packet sows up to 12 feet, or one 4-foot diameter teepee.
64-75 days to maturity.
Outdoors: Sow 1-2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 65°F, ideally 70°–85°F.
For Successive Sowings: Sow every 7-14 days up to 80 days before your average first fall frost date. In very hot summer areas, skip sowing as high heat approaches; temperatures consistently above 90°F will prevent beans from forming.
Indoors: Not recommended, as bean seedlings are sensitive to root disturbance.
What is an heirloom seed?
An heirloom variety is one that has been passed down from generation to generation. Generally, the variety must have been around for at least 50 years. They are open-pollinated, which means they have been exposed to natural pollination methods like insects or winds. They aren’t hybrids or genetically modified.
