Thai Soldier Long Bean

2 Reviews | Write a Review
Vigorous bush habit for those who want to grow long beans but prefer not to trellis. Foot-long pods are firm and very flavorful. Pods are strikingly different in appearance, having tiger-stripes in dark red-brown. Superior variety from Thailand, where long beans are a staple crop. Unusual and very choice!

What are the pros? good germination

What are the cons? none I can name.


I planted these last year and was very excited to try them in the kitchen. I direct seeded 10 beans and got 100% germination. Three of the plants died within two weeks, but the survivors.... for a while. 2016 was the year of the insect infestation in this area. We had aphids, flea beetles, cabbage worms, squash bugs and vine borers, cucumber beetles, Colorado potato beetles, tomato horn worm and grasshoppers to name a few. The only vegetation the insects didn't decimate were the weeds, which quickly overtook the entire garden. I will try again this year and hope for better conditions because the bean did germinate and grow very well to begin.

What are the pros? Really pretty flowers.

What are the cons? Not a bush type.


We bought these thinking we would try something new. I thought maybe they would be a lot like a green bean but bigger. It might be just that we didn't know what we were doing but they didn't have a great flavor. Also I had assumed that they were a bush type. We planted a short row of them and I think four plants came up. A couple months later they had spread out about 10 feet in each direction. We are thinking of collecting the dry beans to use in soups through the winter but not sure if we will. Very productive if ya have a use for them.
