60 to 100 Days — Some folks say that this old heirloom variety was named after the characteristic way that their pods twist and snake around the vines and poles.  Another theory is that the speckled brown and tan seed coloration resembles that of a rattler.

The plants are vigorous, reach up to about ten feet, have light purple flowers and provide good yields of six to seven inch long green pods that are streaked with purple.  A very tasty green bean at their young and tender stage (about 60 days) that can be enjoyed fresh, canned or frozen.  'Rattlesnake' beans are also great as a dried bean and used in chili or baked dishes.  Reportedly drought tolerant. Called 'Preacher' bean in some parts of the Southern United States.

Each packet contains one ounce, which is approximately 95 seeds per ounce.

Great Beans ... great success ...
I've had great success with these beans that I've grown for several years now. They've been productive despite our generally hot and dry weather. This year I planted some yellow (Golden Gate) and green (Northeaster) Romano-type beans in addition to these 'Rattlesnake' beans from Victory Seeds.

None of the Northeaster beans germinated and only one Golden Gate bean germinated. Just a single bean. I replanted those teepees with [Victory Seeds] 'Rattlesnake' beans and they're already coming up within a couple of days! Sometimes we put young 'Rattlesnake' beans raw in our salads and they are great canned or frozen. Sometimes they stop producing during the hottest weather, but start right up again once it cools off a bit.

VSC Notes: Just to point out, neither of the beans that Debra mentioned above with germination issues were from Victory Seeds® :). ~Mike

Excellent, excellent taste; very prolific!
Excellent, excellent taste; very prolific ... for small garden, suggest you start beans under light and then put in garden ... loopers are hard on them when just started. You must order by mail; never found them in a garden center. Charlie
