Purple Kings ready for pickin?

Mari_88(7a)June 28, 2012

Hey everyone! Im growin Purple Kings for the first time. Anyone had these before? Ive got a few beans on the vine that are about 5 or 6 inches and thick as a pencil. Is this a good reference for a 'ready' bean? I tasted one a little smaller than that and it was soo good! What is ya'lls experience with these purple guys?

Thanks!
