ORGANIC, HEIRLOOM MOSIAC YARD LONG BEAN, PURPLE LONG BEAN
IN THE LEGUME FAMILY. I GREW THESE BEANS ON A TEEPEE STYLE TRELLIS. THE KIDS LOVED IT. I PLANTED YELLOW SUMMER SQUASH AT THE BASE OF THE TEEPEE AS A COMPANION PLANT AND INCLUDED A FEW MARIGOLDS.
MOSAIC BEAN, PURPLE LONG BEAN, YARD LONG BEAN
EASY TO GERMINATE AND GROWS FAST. THE PLANT CAN BE GROWN IN THE GROUND OR IN POTS. THE PLANT CAN BE GROWN IN ANY PLANTING ZONE THAT GETS AT LEAST 3 MONTHS OF WARM WEATHER.
PLANT PRODUCES A BEAN POD THAT CAN REACH UP TO A YARD OR MORE.
THE POD IS BEST EATEN WHEN THE POD AND BEANS ARE STILL YOUNG AND SOFT, LIKE A GREEN BEAN. THIS IS NOT A BEAN TO SHELL AND EAT THE BEANS ALONE.
THEY CAN BE USED IN STIR FRIES, SOUPS, SALADS OR A STAND ALONE SIDE DISH.
THEY HAVE A DELICIOUS NUTTY FLAVOR AND ARE LOW IN CALORIES.
THE PLANT DOES BEST ON A FENCE OR TRELLIS.
EVEN WHEN NOT PRODUCING BEANS, THE FOLIAGE IS VERY NICE AND THE FLOWERS ARE A REALLY PRETTY LAVENDER.
A GREAT ADDITION TO ANY EDIBLE GARDEN.
GREAT FOR THE POLLINATORS
LEGUMES HELP TO IMPROVE THE SOIL BY FIXING NITROGEN.
YARDLONG BEAN IS BEST HARVESTED ABOUT TWO MONTHS AFTER GERMINATION. PRODUCTION CAN CONTINUE THROUGH SUMMER AND INTO THE FALL. HARVEST PODS WHEN THE BEANS ARE ABOUT HALF THE DIAMETER OF A PENCIL, BEFORE THE SEEDS HAVE FILLED OUT INSIDE AND WHEN THEY WILL STILL SNAP EASILY.
THANK YOU AND HAPPY GARDENING.
Story of this Seed:
WE HAVE BEEN GROWING YARD LONG BEANS FOR YEARS NOW. THE CHILDREN LOVE GROWING THEM AND IT IS FUN TO THINK OF NEW WAYS TO MAKE THE TRELLIS.
GERMINATION SUGGESTIONS: I PRESOAK AN HOUR OR SO IN ROOM TEMPERATURE WATER. PUT ONE-TWO SEEDS IN A CELL/POT OF PRE-MOISTENED SOIL. WATER, PLACE IN A WARM LOCATION AND DO NOT LET THE SOIL DRY COMPLETELY OUT. TRANSPLANT WHEN SEVERAL INCHES TALL AND THE PLANT HAS SEVERAL SETS OF LEAVES. OR PLANT SEEDS DIRECTLY INTO THE GROUND WHEN CONDITIONS ALLOW.
