What are the pros? Can't miss
What are the cons? Almost too abundant
My favorite long bean simply because the purple color makes them easy to harvest, compared to green ones, which tend to blend in. They are great stir-fried or baked, but not the best steamed--their texture is a bit odd for that. I prefer Calima bush and Fortex pole (which Rareseeds doesn't offer...sigh!) for steaming.
You get pounds of beans weekly from these plants. They need a strong, fairly high trellis and do tend to take over so give them plenty of space and don't be afraid to trim them back when they start invading.
