75 days. Very long pods grow to 24”! Very tender and tasty; no strings, small seeds; huge yields on 10’ vines. They grow well under almost any conditions–very resistant to heat, humidity and insects; great for the South. Pick for snap beans when 12”-14” long; delicious stir-fried! The ‘Vigna’ genus does well for us all summer at Baker Creek.

What are the pros? Everything

What are the cons? Don't store long in the frig

Review:

Our summers are very hot and often dry. Most bush or pole beans stop producing when it's very hot. I've read that long beans are related to cowpeas, not regular beans so they thrive in the heat. Since I tried growing them, I plant a few every year. They are terrific in stir-fries and one of our favorite ways to eat them is to heat them in a skillet with a little bit of toasted sesame oil and when they are nearly done, add some Bragg liquid amino and fresh ground pepper. We use the Bragg liquid amino instead of soy sauce, but soy sauce would give the same flavor. A few beans is plenty for a meal and the vines usually set 2 or 3 beans at every node. I usually end up giving many away to neighbors because they don't store well in the refrigerator for more than a couple of days. Last year, I stopped picking them and let many pods fill and dry on the vines. Some were saved to replant and the rest were eaten like cowpeas. Very good eats!

What are the pros? Easy to grow organically

Review:

My family loves these beans stir-fried with shallots, garlic, and olive oil. They grew really well using a cattle placed in an arch. Very low maintenance grown organically. High productivity. A few Mexican beetles were found on the leaves but they didn't do significant damage. In WV we harvested them twice: July and late Sept/Oct. I have been sharing the seeds with all my gardening friends!

Review:

My father bought me a pack of these beans a couple years ago. He had never grown them, just thought they were interesting. I tried the companion growing trick and planted them with my corn. It didn't work so well. The beans vined taller than the corn and eventually pulled the corn down. I still harvested tons of beans and couldn't eat them fast enough. This year I trellised them properly and they are very happy beans indeed. They're very pretty vines covered with beautifully delicate flowers. And I'm picking handfuls of beans at least 2-3 times a week from only 6 plants. Once again, I find I can't eat them fast enough. However, I love them and plan to always grow them. I'm in the middle of a move so I didn't do any canning. Next year, I plan to plant way more and go crazy canning them.

Review:

I planted these opposite Good Mother Stallard Beans (both bought from Baker Creek) on an 8' tall arched trellis on March 27, 2014. They took more than 14 days to germinate, and once they did germinate, they were scraggly and had warped leaves. I ripped them out and planted a second round with inoculant to boost healthy growth. All the while my GMS Beans were thriving and 12" tall with flowers on them. The second round came up just as the first. I pulled all of those, soaked my last few seeds overnight and planted them the first of May. They have come up the same way and stand currently at 6" looking as sickly as ever and covered in aphids (due to their unhealthy nature). Meanwhile my GMS Beans are covered with hundreds of pods covering the arched trellis. I bought these seeds based on their wonderful reviews, good for the south, and for the variety of fresh long bean. I feel like the seeds must have came from a batch of non healthy plants.
