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.

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.

Grew these this year and they were really long. Loved the uniqueness of these. Grew tall and took a little longer to grow but lasted a long time too.

Review:

I was very excited to try these after reading all the wonderful reviews on the great flavor and yield and the fast growth. I planted quite a few different varieties of beans this year to try and find some keepers. All of my other pole beans have already climbed up and over the hog panel I used as a trellis. Of the 4 beans I planted of this variety, only 2 sprouted and these two are only about 8"-12" and haven't even begun to attach to the hog panel. I am so disappointed as I was really looking forward to trying these. Hopefully they'll take off and produce soon.
