What are the pros? Everything
What are the cons? Late bloomers
My Thai hairdresser gave me these beans to plant. I grow stuff and take the excess to her. I planted in late May last year and they took off like Jack's beanstalk. Up the chicken wire provided and onto second story landing and along the metal rail and started down the stairs before the frost got them in Nov. They did not bloom until around early October and I did not know about the daylight requirements last year. For 6 weeks I harvested beans from all this growth from 6 seeds. I enjoyed stir fried, in soups and especially raw. I planted two this year and they are up to second story. I have tried the leaves after reading about them being eatable and they are wonderful in a green salad. May try stir fried when I have more to pick. I did not see tubers when I changed the dirt and prepared the planter for this spring. They do not like to be chilled and I should have brought them in at night when I planted this spring. Took three plantings before they thrived. Love this bean.
