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:

This is my 1st year growing these, and I will probably not even plant the regular green beans next year, I like these so much! Plant these as early as possible, bc they take longer to get established, and don't flower until they're up 6 feet. I keep eating these beans off the trellis as I'm gardening, and they are very tender and crispy even when they're almost 20" long. One advantage I've noticed is that the bean bugs and squash beetles leave them almost completely alone. I grow them on an inclined trellis, which looks unusual with all the long pods hanging down, and it makes them easier to pick.

Review:

This was most amazing vegetable for me this year. It keeps shooting out delicious beans, which increase in size significantly every day. Close to 100% germination. Definitely will be part of our garden from now on. It was not prone to any disease, however it turned out to be deer favorite too! This truly turned out to be the winner for this year. Hot-weather bean and takes over in the heat when other beans stop producing. Overall, 5*.

What are the pros? Very productive.

Review:

Love these beans! We have a hot and dry summer near Sacramento. When the temperature pushes past 90, my string beans start to stumble and these take off. They are very productive, and because of the purple color, they are easy to pick. Their color holds up during cooking, so they are very attractive in a summer salad. I'll plant these every year from now on.

Review:

This was definitely worth trying. They did seem to grow slower than the green beans (Blue Lake 274, Crockett, Hickok, Dragon Tongue) planted within a couple days, but those are all showing the effects of a hot summer and the yard long beans are going strong. These get shade from a giant red oak until about 11:00, then sun until 6:00. I think I ended up with about 16 plants but they've grown everywhere on the 6 foot bean tower and probably would go to 10 feet if given the chance. I've learned to pick them before the pods soften, leaving an unpalatable, deflated skin (though those should dry well for next year's seeds). I know some we've eaten were at least 20 inches long, but most have been 12 to 15 inches. I haven't just blanched to eat plain like we have done with most of the green beans, but these have worked really nicely in Thai green, red and yellow curries--in fact, my son commented today that we seem to have found the perfect use for them. Will grow again next year!

What are the pros? Huge yields, very sturdy

What are the cons? Have to wait a bit

Review:

Very heat tolerant, we planted these direct seed in April and they are now climbing up our fence via string training. Very good climbers, healthy plants, and despite peaking in the 90s now they are producing even harder. Each plant has several pod duos. My first harvest from 6 plants was a huge handful of more mature pods, and I could have harvested some smaller ones if I wanted to. A bonus is compared to other long beans, these taste a lot better and they keep their red color with heat. Chinese mosaic did not. These will likely keep producing through summer. Just be careful to harvest as more beans will grow out of an existing cluster, so don't tear the whole part off just snip the bean stem.
