hi all, I found this forum when i ran a Google search for the Ijevan Purple King bean. Got seeds at the Heirloom Festival last year, planted them & they're doing GREAT. But the packet they came in had no information at all, I can see they're a shelling bean from the posts on this site, but what about fresh eating or canning? Any insights appreciated!

i don't think so. the four beans in that picture had fairly small seeds, but those pods are very good eating when picked young. i don't have any information about ljevan Purple King.
