I've been reading that the spacing should be a little larger on these to encourage growth.

What did you guys do?

Hi,
Last year I planted my yard long beans at 8 per square. They did just fine. If you want to eat them as a green bean, pick them a little smaller. My kids like to eat a single bean for dinner. Enjoy your harvest.

If these are the same as asparagus beans, I planted 8 to a square (didn't realise they needed more room), but they didn't all germinate, so I ended up with 19 plants in three squares -- basically 6 to a square. They are growing very well and climbing the trellis, but not large enough yet to produce. They don't look any larger than regular climbing beans, but this is my first time with this variety.

I planted the asparagus beans along the fence, and they are climbing over the top already.
Still, no blossoms.

I have some. Didn't have many seeds this year and so I have 2 squares sharing a trellis with 2 squares of Kentucky Wonders. I like the long beans better. Only takes 2-4 for a meal for me.

I planted Chinese green noodle beans and Chinese red noodle beans.  The get LONG but not as long as yard long beans.  I pick when they are about 18-24 inches long.  I planted them 6 per square.  3 on each side of the trellis. The trellis runs down the middle of the squares.

You can see some of the longer ones growing at the bottom right hand corner of the picture.

We planted yard longs in March or April? they're just now reaching the top of the arch, but look awful. Not green, and are sparse looking? We are getting some beans, but they don't look anything like your plants yolos. The "regular" green beans in the squares right next to them are growing like crazy. Ours are the regular yard longs, not the chinese like yours? I wonder if that's the difference??

I think they are tastier than regular beans, almost an asparagus flavor somehow?

Bakers has 9 varieties.  I bet each is a little better suited to a certain type of soil/ climate etc.  I used to grow yard longs in Escondido and I noticed a big difference in seeds.  Back then these were newly available so it was hard to know which varieties one was getting.  I want to start trying these in hte greenhouse next year.

My asparagus yard longs are doing great! They are different than other beans, in that they seem tougher when smaller, and more tender the bigger they get. We love them sauteed with onion, s&p and gilbertie tomatoes, also from the garden. Nice, simple, and light. Very Happy

I saw these while looking through seed catalogs and was intrigued by them. After reading this thread I'm definitely adding them to my "to try" list. So has anyone grown different varieties of them to compare the difference and have you found one you like better than others?

I am growing these for the first time instead of my usual wide beans. They are so cool to see as they grow. My husband disliked them raw in the garden (he's not wrong). Said he liked the "usual" better. Last night, I sauteed garlic, salt and pepper in butter then tossed the cut-in-half (another husband preference) beans with the flavored butter and then, we grilled them. They were really good. Husband says he prefers them cooked to raw. I have them growing up the trellis, a four-sided square that reached about 6' high. Then, I tied string to the top of the trellis and attached the other end to 8' high 1x2's and attached them to the fence. The beans are crawling along the strings. Soon, I will have a trellis formed of the beans!
