Taiwan Black Seeded Long Bean

         
 
4 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
This is the true “Yard Long” bean, with light green pods 38” long, with black beans. The long vines set heavy yields of these delicious pods that will amaze your friends! Long beans should be lightly fried and not boiled. They have superior flavor to common beans. This variety was collected from a Taiwanese immigrant in the 1970s. RARE!

What are the pros? Very long pods, very short DTM

What are the cons? Pods somewhat delicate

Review:

One of the earliest & most vigorous long beans I've grow. The rampant vines climb aggressively, requiring little training. They bear very early; only one other pole variety I've grown (also black seeded) was faster. Very long, thin, light green pods are borne in incredible numbers. They have a delicate flavor, and are a little more sensitive to over-cooking than most of the red-seeded cultivars. The thin pods have a tendency to get "pithy" quickly if stressed, so it is important to keep the soil moist... a thick layer of mulch is highly recommended for best results. It is worth noting that in an experiment one year in which I observed root nodules on various legumes, Taiwan Black had the largest nodules out of 50 legumes grown. I highly recommend this variety for Northern gardeners, or if you just want bragging rights. ;-)

What are the pros? lots of beans and no bugs

What are the cons? texture is a bit fibrous

Review:

This is my first year growing beans in my garden. Of the two kinds, these all came up, bugs left them alone and twice broke my bean pole set up. They are still growing like crazy. As far as not boil them, well my friend who lives in Taiwan DOES boil them. We did here and they were a bit fibrous compared to my "American" beans. But we ate them. I canned them, fermented them and stir fried. The fermented ones are AMAZING! It's like these beans were made to ferment. These beans are also good for preppers.

What are the pros? Great flavor & texture

What are the cons? Almost too many!

Review:

I planted these beans two years ago in New Haven, Connecticut, and had to reinforce the poles and nets that held them up. These are prolific, densely growing beans with superior flavor: do not boil them, they will get angry. Our excellent, favorite Chinese (Taiwanese) restaurant took as many of them as they could get and prepared them sumptuously. And still I had to give many strands away. We were still picking in early October. I am sowing them again this year. Highly recommended! Thank you Rare Seeds Dot Com!
