(Bush) (Dragon Tongue, Merveille de Piemonte, Romano Bush)

Dragon Langerie (“Dragon bean”) is an heirloom wax bean from the Netherlands, which dates to the 19th century. The mature plants have 6 – 8” long flat yellow pods with purple/magenta streaks. It is rare, but there is also the odd pod that is almost entirely purple. The seeds are lilac with navy streak/spotting and the rare navy seed with lilac streaks/spotting. This bean is a very productive early producer, with good shade and heat tolerance. It is a rather forgiving variety so if you cannot pick beans right away the older ones are usually still tender.
