What are the pros? good producers
What are the cons? squeaky, likes heat
My first introduction to long beans and not quite what I was hoping for. I was attracted to the large size of these beans thinking that it would take less space in my garden to produce enough to freeze for the winter-perhaps replacing my regular green beans. I thought the flavor was rather bland, they take much longer to cook (I stir-fried), and they have a strange "squeak" against your teeth as you eat them. I didn't even bother to try freezing them. I'll stick to green beans. The plants were very slow to take off because of the wet spring-I thought they were going to die at one point because all the leaves yellowed, but they did eventually bounce back and climbed about 6 ft, producing quite abundantly.
