80 days. This is the most stunning and unique bean I have grown yet. Fantastic, deep red, 18” pods are so delicious and full of nutrition, and they even keep most of their color when sauteed! Long vines produce all summer and do well under many conditions. This incredible variety will draw lots of attention in your home garden or at market. We are so excited to offer this unique, Chinese ethnic variety that produces fairly early. Small red seeds.

What are the pros? Productive

What are the cons? Rather bland

Review:

I had maybe 15 vines of these and a 10 foot trellis. They easily conquered the trellis, and were super productive for me. Like...15 vines producing 1-2 lbs of beans each over the summer. They were pretty too, and the hummingbirds liked the flowers, which were also large and very pretty. Alas, they just weren't that tasty. I'd take any standard issue bush or pole bean over these any day. There was flavor, but it was a bit bland, and what flavor there was wasn't great. Even grocery store green beans would have won in a taste test with ease. My S.O. agreed whole heartedly. And maybe that's my problem...maybe I expect them to be like my other "green beans," when they're clearly something different. Fortunately, we had a friend who liked them, so we didn't waste many (although I wonder what eating 20 lbs of beans in a couple months did to his GI tract?) I guess they just weren't for me.

Review:

Out of all the long beans I trialed, these were the clear winners. Not only were they the most productive and disease resistant (shrugged off aphids, heat/humidity, and neglect), but also the most beautiful (the red color makes them easy to see and pick.) They produce so many beans that it can become overwhelming, and daily harvests may eventually seem chore like. Rampant vines quickly covered a 6' tall fence. The taste is pretty good...a bit drier and firmer than a regular bush bean.

Review:

I got these late last year and planted a few in mid-summer. Mistake. They do take a little while to get going, We plant 5 plants again this spring and they are great. We have already harvested about 5 pounds of beans. Our friend from Laos loved them and showed us how they use them in stir fry and as favoring in chicken and pork dishes. They were surprised we had them. You can also just blanch them in hot water for about 5-8 minutes and eat like green beans with a little seasoning. Will definitely be growing again

Review:

I have a seed addiction. I would buy nearly everything in the catalogue if I could afford it and had room to plant it all. Alas, I do not have those resources, so I must limit myself to the most interesting, coolest looking, most unique, best reviewed items. I am confused by the reviews on this product! Last year, I thought maybe we had a poopy growing season for it, but I'm getting nothing again but a few spindly very short vines with no sign of producing. I see reviews from climates on both ends of being much more extreme than it is here. It's been hot, hot, hot very early this year. Plenty of water. My other beans and crops are going to town, even the ones that are supposed to be a bit persnickety. WHAT gives?! :(

Review:

There Is a GREAT reason this has so many reviews! I use to love fresh green beans. But I would rather have these ANY DAY over green beans! I saved a lot of seed last year, because I won't be planting any green beans, and I will be planting 2x more of these instead. I also am excited to share these with my best friend in Tennesse!
