Long Bean, Taiwan Yard-Long

97% of 100

This is a true “Yard Long” bean that can easily reach over 3 feet in length! Get high yields from a small space; the vines set a heavy crop of these delicious pods that will amaze your friends. We love these beans stir fried. They have superior flavor to common beans. The dry beans are black in color and make a superb cooking bean. This rare variety was brought to America by a Taiwanese immigrant around 1970. This versatile Asian bean has garnered the nickname “asparagus bean” for its crisp texture, reminiscent of the favorite seasonal delicacy. Also called noodle beans, the young pods make a perfect spaghetti substitute. This is the longest bean we have seen, reaching over 3 feet in length!
