I am very excited to report what may be a great hot summer bean to grow.  Here is our first picking of yard long beans with promise of a productive summer.

I first planted these beans at the request of my Filipina DIL as these were the beans she was used to seeing at her home.  Since they grow well in the tropics, I figgered they would grow well in the South.   Since then I have switched from my old standard Kentucky Wonder.  Planted 9 to a square, you get a jungle.  They have grown completely over and down a cattle panel arch in past years.  But watch for aphids.  Last year the vines in one bed were completely black with aphids that didn't respond well to being power washed off.  They stuck like glue.

I picked up a pack of these and a pack of Kentucky Wonder pole beans to replace our bush beans, now that they seem to be finished out for the season.  I'm looking forward to seeing them grow.

Thanks for posting your blog note, and giving me reassurance these are a good choice.  Smile

Has anyone in a hot DRY area grown them? Are they comparable in taste to KY Wonder? Thanks

And if so, are they like green beans? Dried beans? I have never seen seed packets for yard long beans so where would I find them on-line? Thanks! Laughing

I grew Chinese Red Noodle Beans and Chinese Green Noodle Beans last year.  I believe they are a variety of Yardlong Beans.  They are best cooked stir fried.

You can see the beans hanging down on the bottom right hand corner of this picture.  They were very prolific but I like the taste and texture of the rattlesnake beans so I am growing the rattlesnake beans now.

Your beans look pretty much like ours only yours look healthier ad better Sad  Currently the aphids have found ours but we picked another big pan full and I am preparing to smother them down in the ole black iron pot with Cajun seasoning.

Baker Creek (rareseeds.com) has all kinds of interesting beans. I drool over their catalogs.

Territorial Seeds, too. And there's a local company here called Siskyou Seeds that is growing enough to have penetrated to a few more towns lately. It offers local-adapted seeds for our weather, which is great, and I like contributing to more local businesses when I can. I got some dragon tongue beans from them.

yard Long Beans Empty What Does a Cajun Do With Yard Long Beans??

Post  Cajun Cappy on 7/10/2015, 3:32 pm

Well he drags out the ole black iron pot and smothers them to death of course. Smile  Here is the photographic evidence:

and for the record, they were delicious.

Oh good.  Someone else grows crazy long beans.  Looks like one of the Chinese varieties I grow (or kill - depends on how well my garden is doing), complete with the twin flowers (on rare occasion, I get triplets).

I need to check the village market and see of anyone has any that really are a full yard long (most of mine aren't quite up to that standard).

Forget the yardstick. Just enjoy em. I get depressed when I see a photo of something that someone else has raised and it's green and big and the fruits are huge. Mine were about 27" and I jumped for joy.

yard Long Beans Empty The experiment Ends

Post  Cajun Cappy on 8/25/2015, 11:39 am

Well the long bean experiment is over.  They have finally given up burned up and dried up.  I must say they put in a 5 star performance though.  We planted them and did no maintenance no watering no fertilizing nothing and they made it almost all summer.  Next spring we gonna plant only one trellis with them and care for them and I bet they make just as much.  We ate them weekly many different ways and still put 10 big fat qt bags of them in the freezer.  A great way to put them in the bags is cut them to length of the width of the bag and stack em in.  So we are happy with this crop and on to our next experiment........but thats another post.
