Vigorous, high-yielding Thai variety. The lovely, deep purple pods have green tips, are crisp and stay tender to amazing lengths, often reaching 20 inches! The productive variety is a local favorite in Thailand where long beans are appreciated as a very important staple crop.

Review:

So far we are very impressed with these beans. We did not plant these until mid August and we already have long purple bean pods cascading down the plant. The beans appeared suddenly. One day we were looking at the pretty flowers and a few days later we found some long beans,over a foot long! How did we miss the beans? These beans definitely need a tall trellis. We have not yet tasted these but will report back after the first sampling.

Review:

We had strange weather this year, late hard freezes. So I was thrilled when these beans came up. It is late July and the first pole beans to produce.(I planted several types) The flowers are a lovely lavender color. The beans themselves add interest to the garden. I planted them on the grandchildrens teepee and on a strong trellis. All are producing like crazy just one week after they started blooming! Love these. Saving some seeds for next year!

Review:

I grew this in NW Ohio. In my yard and at Toledo Botanical Garden- It performed superbly in both areas. At home we couldn't keep up with it, eating, canning, giving it to neighbors. The Botanical Garden was no different, even though that plot has a significant amount of shade...it still performed excellently!

Review:

I had good luck with these in raised beds on a trellis. I harvested my first pods in May, and I am still getting new ones at the tail end of August. The pods are 1.5 to 2 feet long, and tender enough to eat raw if you harvest them early. My only problem has been the swarms of red wasps that love to hang around the beans for some reason.

Review:

First time planting these in New Haven, CT. Amazing yield, requires high, strong trellis. Flavor is complex and simply delicious. Color maintains after you sauté or fry. A huge hit with kids, and our local Chinese restaurant is only too happy to take them off my hands and dish up amazing variations. At home, simply sauté with olive oil, garlic and soy sauce: magic.
