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? Heat and lots of it

What are the cons? Cold weather

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.

What are the pros? So easy to grow in Texas

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

I LOVE these beans! They are SO easy to grow in the Texas summers. These grow in a super sunny corner of my yard. Keep an eye on them, as if they are under watered, the beans don't get as long and are shriveled, which is what happened to me last year. no worries. I saved the pods for this years seedlings. Do not hesitate! They are so delicious when saut?ed!

What are the pros? grew well in my climate

What are the cons? none

Review:

I grew these and the Thai # 2 Red-Seeded. Loved them both. The purple ones were great because they stood out from the green foliage, making them easier to pick. They both grew well in my warm, rainy, humid climate (Keaau, Hawaii), where some plants have trouble. We chopped them into 1-3" pieces and sauted with some garlic and oil. Mixed them with the green ones for a very pretty and yummy dish. I am not a green bean connoisseur; I never actually buy green beans, but since these will grow easily in my garden and I can harvest them for free, I really enjoy them! My 2-year-old loves to eat them raw from the garden. I got a ton of beans off of just a small, 12' long trellis. Had to pick very day or 2 to keep up. If I didn't feel like cooking beans that night, I would give them away or feed them to my goats, who very much appreciated them! I definitely plan on growing more of these, and the purple ones. I am also going to try other varieties, just for fun.
