Thai Soldier Long Bean

Vigorous bush habit for those who want to grow long beans but prefer not to trellis. Foot-long pods are firm and very flavorful. Pods are strikingly different in appearance, having tiger-stripes in dark red-brown. Superior variety from Thailand, where long beans are a staple crop. Unusual and very choice!

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? It was a vine not a bush

Review:

We we're looking for a crop we could grow in our hard clay soil, and this plant sure likes the soil. We we're hoping for a bush like it said in the description, BUT were highly surprised by vines everywhere.

What are the pros? Very productive and tasty

What are the cons? Not bush habit

Review:

Very productive and tasty. Can be fibrous if picked too late. Please note that they do not have a bush habit. I planted them with corn and sunflowers and the bean plants outgrew them both and are dragging them down!

What are the pros? Productive, Kept color cooked

What are the cons? Not a bush variety

Review:

Started seeds in early April, they started producing in early July and kept on producing until the first frost in December! I planted this without support in my front yard flower bed, but it grew all over lol. However it is a pretty plant so it was ok that they grew up the neighboring pineapple guava. Three cheers for edible landscaping! We planted 6 plants and they yielded 2.5 lbs of beans, more than any other bean variety we grew! They tasted great and kept most of their color when cooked!!! How thrilling!! The color faded a little, but the variegation was still strong; especially compared to the pretty Dragon's Tongue bean that fades completely with cooking. These were very tasty, raw or cooked. Our 1 year old would steal freshly picked from the table and eat them raw haha. So silly! We will definitely be growing them every year!

What are the pros? good germination

What are the cons? none I can name.

Review:

I planted these last year and was very excited to try them in the kitchen. I direct seeded 10 beans and got 100% germination. Three of the plants died within two weeks, but the survivors.... for a while. 2016 was the year of the insect infestation in this area. We had aphids, flea beetles, cabbage worms, squash bugs and vine borers, cucumber beetles, Colorado potato beetles, tomato horn worm and grasshoppers to name a few. The only vegetation the insects didn't decimate were the weeds, which quickly overtook the entire garden. I will try again this year and hope for better conditions because the bean did germinate and grow very well to begin.
