Vigna unguiculata ssp. sesquipedalis
It's fun to see how long these beans can grow with a good trellis to climb! Chinese yardlong bean is also known as snake bean and long-podded cow pea. Eat young green pods raw or in stir-fries, soups, omelets and more.
Planting Instructions: Sow Chinese Yard Long Bean seeds directly in the ground 1" deep, 3" apart in spring after all danger of frost has passed. Keep moist until germinated. Needs a tall trellis, fence, corn stalk or sunflower stalk to climb.
Seed Saving Instructions: Allow pods to fully dry on the vine. Pick dried pods into a bin and crush to dislodge beans. Store beans in a paper or mesh bag to ensure they dry fully and remain dry.
Approx 30 Chinese Yardlong Bean seeds per packet
