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? Resistant to bean beetle

What are the cons? Attracts ants

Review:

We had three bean varieties growing last year. The other two (a bush bean and a pole bean) were savaged by bean beetles but these were fine. We enjoyed these in stir fry with other garden veggies. They didn't have any strings and were so productive. We'll be growing this again this year.

Review:

I live in an apartment complex, so all of my planting is done in a 4'x20' plot in our city's community garden. These beans were slow to start, but even though we went through cycles of extreme rain followed by extreme drought, these plants were amazing growers. They produced soo many beans! Unfortunately, they grew so well that they tried to choke out all my other plans! (ya know, like kudzu). I'm passing my leftover seed to friends that have larger garden areas than me. *These taste like green beans and were amazing in my Thai stir-fry along with the Emily basil. I still have freezer bags full of Red noodle beans even after giving them away by the arm-loads.

What are the pros? good producers

What are the cons? squeaky, likes heat

Review:

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.

Review:

I grew these beans once and they were beautiful and tasty. The vines are tall6-8' and spread about 2' wide. Even though we were having a drought, they still produced beans the entire summer.

Review:

Planted a garden in 2013 after several years without. I planted these and several other types of beans, green and purple. Trying to eat healthier food by including more beans and other vegetables. These were very slow to start producing beans, had the first harvest in late August to early September. The plants grew to around 6.5 feet tall. It was really cool to watch them grow. Harvesting them was fun too, each bean was approximately 18 inches in length. Cut them into one inch lengths along with green and purple beans from the garden. Cooked them together in a stir fry method and mixed them with rice on the plate. Added a little Olive oil and Kikoman less sodium soy sauce when cooking. My 11 year old daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed them. Other family members will not eat them, but that just leaves more for my oldest daughter and me. Will definitely plant again in 2014 and beyond. Looking forward to the 92 inches of snow melting so I can begin preparing the much larger garden area.
