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.

What are the pros? Easy to grow. Great Flavor.

Review:

We just had our first beans from our purple podded yard long beans. #1 These look absolutely beautiful in the garden. They have such amazing color and really stand out because of how bizarre they look. These had a nutty flavor when eaten fresh and not cooked. We steamed/sauteed them in a pan and they were absolutely delish. This is the first season for my wife and I planting and these were set and forget for the most part. They did develop an aphid issue but it's not detrimental to the plants, we're just hosing them off from time to time and they're gone. We have bad aphid issues on everything except bush beans so it's not specific to these. Still producing. Beautiful flowers.

What are the pros? Productive till 1st freeze!

What are the cons? None!

Review:

Tasty, prolific, disease resistant, and ornamental vines/beans that produce abundantly till first freeze! Absolute best of the red/purple varieties for the hot, humid, disease, and drought/flood prone South. Tried all the rest, this is the best!

Review:

They are not lying when it says it loves the heat. Mine did not take off till we got in the upper 80s and it has just been shooting off beans since! Wonderful flavor, tender texture. I give them away and a friend is kicking herself for not taking me up when I was offering seedlings. She inhales the long beans I bring to share.

Review:

Germinated in a timely manner and started growing vigorously, until some small bug infestation almost killed them off. Thankfully my wasp friends swooped in by the droves and ate them. By then they were pathetic looking and full of holes and drooping. I was going to pull them up when I noticed a couple of small beans and decided to give them a chance. Well, that is all they needed. They bounced back and produced nonstop until frost took them. They are very tasty too! Will definitely grow again.

Review:

I have grown many different types of long bean, and these will grow and produce in temperatures in excess of 100 degrees. Most long beans will not set fruit well if it is too hot. These have a very nice strong long bean flavor. Which means they don't taste quite like your western green beans, but taste like, well, long bean. If you cook them, the difference is not very noticeable, but raw beans have a bit of a different flavor. I rather like them. These beans will tolerate poor to average soil, but they require a warm growing season. They will not do well in cold or even cool weather. They don't really get started growing until day time temps push up into the 80s, and they do not like cold nights. They can be hard to start in the spring when it is cool and your western beans are growing - these are a tropical bean, and they really do need 80 days and relatively warm nights to do well.
