What are the pros? Beautiful plant, easy to grow
What are the cons? Not a fan of the flavor
This is the first time I've tried growing long beans. I planted them along my garden fence and they trellised up and beyond with flare. They were a bit slow to start compared to my regular blue lake and yellow wax beans. They were a bit pale at first and I wasn't sure if something was wrong with them. But once they took off there was no stopping them. The beans are beautiful and different. I like almost every vegetable, but these didn't taste all that great to me. Not awful...I ate and froze what I picked. I know why they call them asparagus beans. I like asparagus, but I like green beans a lot better. Right now in February, these are the only green beans I have left in my freezer. Oh well. I saved some seed and will probably grow them next year for ornamental purposes and try another variety in the veggies garden.
