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? 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.

What are the pros? Really pretty flowers.

What are the cons? Not a bush type.

Review:

We bought these thinking we would try something new. I thought maybe they would be a lot like a green bean but bigger. It might be just that we didn't know what we were doing but they didn't have a great flavor. Also I had assumed that they were a bush type. We planted a short row of them and I think four plants came up. A couple months later they had spread out about 10 feet in each direction. We are thinking of collecting the dry beans to use in soups through the winter but not sure if we will. Very productive if ya have a use for them.
