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? Color, Flavor

What are the cons? Slow to climb, mid-long DTM

Review:

Somewhat slow growing, but has a good yield, and OUTSTANDING nutty flavor. One of their best features is that unlike purple snap beans, the pods keep their color when cooked... while they may turn grayish, a splash of vinegar will restore most of the burgundy red. These freeze pretty well, if blanched, frozen, then vacuum sealed to keep them from drying out. I've kept them for up to 2 years that way with little loss of quality. To avoid the pods becoming "pithy", mulch around the base, and keep them well watered... they will remain succulent to a larger diameter than if water stressed. Plant them in the garden next to other water hogs. The vines may need some training initially (they tend to sprawl horizontally at first), but they will climb vigorously once started. In my Northern location, Red Noodle benefits from being started as transplants, to increase the harvest window.

What are the pros? fun, delicious, easy

What are the cons? needs heat, allow to climb

Review:

Grew these for the first time last year. You can almost see the pods grow! Easy to grow, harvest, and prepare. We used these in stir-fries, soups, stews, raw dipped in ketchup, and as a substitute for spaghetti. I blanched and froze some for winter use. Flavor is kind of like zucchini - goes with anything. Saved seed and will grow again this year...

What are the pros? Low maintenance, taste.

What are the cons? Slow as seedlings.

Review:

I tried Red Noodle for the first time this season after getting free seeds. Only planted 4 as a trial. They were slow to sprout and seemed to stay 6 inches high forever. The real action starts when climbing begins. Fast climbers up to 13 feet. Fruit set is good and the pods literally grow at least an inch a day. Mine grew mostly at night. Low maintenance plants. Soil, mulch and water is all they need. Took high heat (40 celsius) and humidity in their stride. I like the taste. To me, the flavour is a cross between mushrooms and a mild radish. My favourite way to eat them is raw, straight off the vine. So crunchy and delicious. Pods over 1 foot long do have strings. These beans need a long, hot season to get from shoot to fruit. I started early enough but after a few recent cool, early Autumnal nights, some leaves are yellowing and not all of the pods are completed. My pole beans were all done before the Snake Beans were ready to harvest. I will definitely grow more than 4 next season!

What are the pros? Everything and extra heat

Review:

I love these beans so much! I grow two different varieties, these and the Thai Purple, on my seventh floor balcony in small plastic pots (8 in diameter, 2 plants per pot). They are hearty little beasts. Excessive rain? No problem. Forget to water them? No problem. 105F week of heat? They love it. 10000% Humidity? They are in heaven. Earlyish producers and keep producing into early October (as long as it's warm still). I have no idea why people even bother growing normal green beans. These have no strings, no fuss, and taste better. Unlike the purple version of green beans, these do not lose their beautiful color when saut?ed. They are beautiful vining on my balcony and have lovely flowers. I highly recommend them for containers. They are also great for beginner gardens. Fast growing, flashy, yummy, and super easy to care for, they are the perfect starter plant to get someone hooked on gardening and heirlooms!

What are the pros? Production, pretty flowers

What are the cons? Attracts ants

Review:

These seedlings sprouted very easily into highly productive plants and even after I had skimped on picking the beans about halfway through the season, they started producing rapidly after I had picked off some of the older pods. They aren't a good bean to steam or boil (a bit bland for my taste), but my household loved them roasted with a little bit of olive oil, garlic, and sea salt. We don't know if it was because of the way they were cooked, but they had a flavor reminiscent of a sweet potato which we found a odd but enjoyable. As a note about the ants, (we didn't use any type of insecticides, pesticides, or repellent because we got honey bees this year and were very leary after finding out that some of the organic sprays and powders can kill the bees) they don't seem to bother the plant itself at all. Just had to be extra careful not to bring any of the little pests in with the beans.
