The Red-Seeded Asparagus Yard-Long Pole Bean says it all—very long asparagus-green and -flavored pods with red beans inside, except it grows to only half its claim. Also called Snake Bean or Chinese Long Bean, but why use half the words, too? Thank goodness it’s stringless, or you’d spend all day stringing pods in the heat that it loves. Vigorous vines can grow to 12'. For best umami flavor, harvest when 8"-12" long and the width of a pencil.
- Easy to grow
- Stringless variety
