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? Everything and extra heat

What are the cons? nothing

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.

What are the pros? amount of harvest

What are the cons? none

Review:

Slow to vine out, but once it starts, prepare yourself. Definitely needs a sturdy support. Beans averaged about 30 inches. I found that the best size to pick was when the bean had a diameter of a bic pen or smaller. Larger beans did have strings and were a bit tough. I stir fried them with garlic and butter - this way they had a decent green bean taste with a slight crunch, I canned them in jars for storage [and have broke into the jar out of curiosity - has a mild bean flavor and kept some color, but more of a brownish], have used them in chicken soup and minestrone. A nice novelty bean. The texture of the bean is not like regular green bean pods - it's more like a 'pith', how an orange has that dry pith under the zest. [not saying it tastes like that] but the older the bean the thicker this 'pith' is. I choose to pick them before the beans get too visible for this reason. I enjoyed this bean and look forward to doing them again.

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.

What are the pros? Beautiful, Productive.

What are the cons? none

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.
