(Vigna unguiculata subsp. sesquipedalis) “Yard-long” is an exaggeration, but we’ve seen pods up to 22 inches in length! Also known as “Asparagus Beans” due to their flavor. Native to tropical and sub-tropical Asia and common in the cuisines of India, Malaysia and the Phillipines. Vines produce beautiful pink and yellow flowers and an abundance of pods
Planting suggestion: Direct sow when soil has warmed and danger of frost has passed. Irrigate regularly. Harvest when pods are round but before beans begin to protrude. Take note: these beans don’t hold well after picking and should be eaten right away. Refrigeration keeps them for up to 48 hours but not much longer.
At least 25 seeds per packet
