Yard Long Red Seeded

Vigna unguiculata

One of the true marvels of the bean world these very prolific vines grow pods up to 2 ft long! For best flavor harvest when 12-15 in and cut into bite size pieces for cooking, or leave whole for delightful noodles. Requires trellising. Thrives in hot weather and resistant to many pests and diseases.

Often called Yard Long Beans, and once grown it becomes very obvious how they get the name. A very popular bean in Asian cuisine, these thrive in hot & humid weather, conditions that would cause poor fruit set for beans of shorter statute. Grown up a trellis like a pole bean, these will be planted as a fun novelty the first season, and planted as a welcome friend for every season after.
