Heirloom Bean Yard Long Vigna Unguiculata Sesquipedalis

The coolest new bean in my assortment. 

It is doing extremely well in the Texas heat. Another great feature is the bend ability that lets you create wondrous eye appealing edible conversation material. 

Unique and delicious, yard long beans grow extra long with super slender pods that are a tasty addition to stir-fries and stews. This variety produces long, dark green, slender, round string-less pods that grow 16-18" (to 45 cm) long. This strong, easy to grow plant needs a warm climate to thrive and will reward you with high yields. They are very
crisp, tender and delicious. Try in recipes that use snap beans. Prepare by cutting into 2" sections. Shell mature pods and use as dried beans. 70 Days Also known as Chinese long bean, garter bean, snake bean, spaghetti bean, yard long bean, asparagus bean.

Thank you for this post.

I have grown these a lot in the past. They do extrememly well in the heat. The taste is fairly unique and is made more palatable by blanching them for 5 minutes in saltwater, then adding a little butter before serving.
