80 days. This is the most stunning and unique bean I have grown yet. Fantastic, deep red, 18” pods are so delicious and full of nutrition, and they even keep most of their color when sauteed! Long vines produce all summer and do well under many conditions. This incredible variety will draw lots of attention in your home garden or at market. We are so excited to offer this unique, Chinese ethnic variety that produces fairly early. Small red seeds.

(hong mian dou: 红面豆) Typically used in the Sichuan dish gan chao dou, dry-fried beans.

What are the pros? germination, production

What are the cons? none

Review:

will definitely plant again pick when pod are 12 - 16". Left some on vine have up to 20 seeds each will see if come true for next year. live in the woods so 6-8hrs full sun is max. planted the hole packet intermixed with cucs and tomatoes in trellised areas. germination was excellent. (Planted after frost) I think because of my limited sun It took 80 days to start to harvest. plants grew beyond my 8 ft trellis. now harvesting a good quantity every other day in late august. excellent quality. love the flavor in the skillet.

Aphids galore
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 2.5
 

What are the pros? First to produce

What are the cons? Massive aphid infestation

Review:

Planted 4 different pole beans, these started producing first and look like a pretty good producer, but the massive aphid infestation, which I have never before had, just made harvesting a chore, trying to clean them and frankly unappetizing as even when I knew there were well cleaned, the mental preclean image stuck. I may wait a year and try again though. I don't use any commercial chemicals or pesticides, so if not naturally resistant to local pests, or the local predators don't step up, I nust find something more suited.

What are the pros? All the pollinators love these

What are the cons? Hard to keep up with

Review:

Will definitely grow some next year but with a different trellis style. We had a 7 foot PVC plus netting trellis that backed up to the fence which made it difficult to harvest a lot of the beans from the backside and top. We planted about 12 seeds directly in the raised bed and all of them came up. We thinned to about 8 plants and all of them thrived and quickly filled out the trellis. The delicate purple flowers smell lovely and all the pollinators including hummingbirds and ants were all over them. So when you go to pick beans, do give the bean a little wiggle so the ants know to move... Once beans started producing we picked a good handful every other day. We pickled them and froze a big bag for later. I love the nutty taste but be sure to pick them before they get too big or they get a bit tough. Our biggest pod got over 24-inches long and we let it stay on the vine for seed saving. Fun!

Review:

I am a frugal gardener that loves to experiment. I grew these in 3 medium sz cardboard boxes I set in a triangle formation.I filled boxes with sticks, straw, dirt and compost.... I put up a trellis structure over these boxes for them to climb..they started slow...I wondered if they would do anything...I did fertilize them with organic fertilizer... After two months they have finally taken off!!! They have grown up and over trellis...it is producing much more than I dreamed! I have cooked up several pots full and they are yummy...I'm dehydrating some young ones, will let some dry on vines for dry beans.....I will freeze some...I highly recommend these for anyone especially those with small spaces...if you have a large family, these will feed them...survival gardeners should plant these....these do well in containers as long as you give them nutrients ...loved them and will grow again!!!!!!

What are the pros? Super tasty, easy to grow

What are the cons? None

Review:

Plant the beans and then go baby your tomatoes and peppers. For a while you will think that there will be only pretty purple flowers and then suddenly you will have more beans than you can handle. They freeze very well and they will stay crisp in the fridge for a month. Love them in stew and soup, but they are best cooked with a pot roast.
