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? Easy to grow, prolific

What are the cons? None

Review:

This bean grew quickly and well, it started producing early, and kept producing. It is quite ornamental growing on a bean tower, with all the beans hanging outside, a surprisingly decorative addition to our vegetable garden.

What are the pros? Fast Germination, Easy to Grow

What are the cons? None

Review:

I planted these seeds at the end of April and by the middle of June I already had huge bean pods ready to be harvested! They are sweet and delicious right off the vine. However, they do well cooked (pod and all) especially when combined with other summer vegetables like squash and corn. Yum! These produce like crazy and grow inches overnight. We have had an exceptionally hot summer where the heat index has been well into the 100s and it hasn't fazed these beans one bit. I only water them once a week or when it rains and they are still massively productive. I will be planting these every year. Also, every single seed I've ordered from Baker's Creek has germinated. These were no exception.

One of the best for flavor

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!
