What are the pros? easy to grow, compact
What are the cons? none
I LOVE these beans.They grow easily, & don't take a lot of space.Unlike other climbers they don't have tons of foliage.I use 8x4 ft raised beds.I planted the beans 8 inches apart w/ lots of trellises.Once the beans took off I had to keep guiding the new shoots back to the trellis, but that was the only upkeep other than watering and picking.The yield is tremendous.The beans are DELICIOUS.I chopped and froze a bunch.They taste ok. Not as good as fresh.These beans are a lot of fun to grow.They grow so quickly & they keep producing until the plant freezes.The 1st time I saw & recognized the bean as a bean I was shocked.I couldn't believe it.The beans really grow 2-3 feet long.I think the best time to pick the bean is when its under 2 feet long. One thing that I've noticed is that ants love to live on the stalks, but they do no damage as far as I can tell.The Chinese Red Noodle bean is a sister bean.I grew them both and when cooked together it looks really pretty.
