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? didn't grow for me

What are the cons? not worth trying here

Review:

we are over 100 degrees in summer - maybe that is why, but they didn't produce. will not try again. in fairness to these beans, no beans other than sugar snap seem to grow here!

What are the pros? Seed quantity

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.

Review:

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.

Review:

I LOVE this bean!! So far I've only eaten them raw in the garden (I say that about everything...this time of year it is such a treat to eat things fresh picked) and don't think they at all taste like asparagus. Perhaps they do cooked- will try soon. Raw they taste like green beans. But they are tender and delicious. I'm eating them at about 18" long. Great green bean flavor and of course, the novelty factor of them being so long is completely delightful! These are a keeper that I will grow for years to come.

Review:

Amazing plants, my favorite variety so far. We live in hot and sunny inland San Diego and so far this bean variety has endured our foggy morning springtime, and super hot and dry summer producing all the while delicious long beans that are wonderful steamed or stir fried. Not stringy at all and great for seed saving towards the end of production. I'm going to plant this one year after year! My longest pod measured 28 1/2 inches long, this plant is a definate family favorite and talk of the garden.
