Description
 

New for 2019 - Vigna unguiculata subsp. sesquipedalis -A different species than the common bean, Yardlong Beans are a cousin to cowpeas and black-eyed peas. Popular in Asia, but rarely grown in Canada. I tried this variety for the first time in 2018, and it actually out-yielded many of my regular beans! The climbing vines first bloomed with big attractive purple flowers, followed quickly by the extremely long green pods. Not quite a full yard long, but a solid half yard. Best cooked, use them any way you would use a regular green bean.

They loved our hot dry summer of 2018, and they were early enough that our September 10 frost didn’t effect them. I’m still only learning about this plant, but they seem promising for our climate. - Very limited supply - 20 seeds
