Dragon Tongue Bush Beans are considered a dual purpose bean— as a fresh snap bean when young and as a shelled bean when fully mature. They can be eaten fresh, pickled, blanched, or the beans dried at maturity and stored as a dried bean. This variety is known for its productive high yields and incredible flavor.
