Description:

10 SEEDS - ORGANIC, HEIRLOOM YARD LONG BEAN

IN THE LEGUME FAMILY

AKA LONG-PODDED COWPEA, BODI/BORA, SNAKE BEAN AND PEA 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.

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.

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.

NOTE - I AM A BACKYARD GARDENER. THE INFORMATION I PROVIDE IS FROM MY GROWING EXPERIENCE AND RESEARCH. PLEASE CHECK TO SEE IF THIS PLANT WILL GROW IN YOUR AREA.

THANK YOU AND HAPPY GARDENING.
