Product Overview

Vigna sesquipedalis

You may get surprised looks when you walk into the kitchen with 18" long beans! Kids find them totally amazing. Stir-fry or steam as you would a snap bean.

Also called Chinese long beans or asparagus beans, 'Orient Wonder' is a delicious and beautiful, dark green, pole bean. Seeds are slow to develop, so pods stay smooth and slender. 'Orient Wonder' is much more tolerant of weather fluctuations (cool, dry to hot, humid) than traditional green beans. It's easy to grow, prolific, and almost indestructible. Beans are most tender at 12"–18" long, even though they can grow as long as 30".

Variety Info

Yard Long bean is so named because the long, slender pods can reach almost a yard in length, though they are best at 12"–18" long, before seeds start to enlarge. Long, slender, round, stringless pods hang in pairs. Commonly called a bean because it is grown and eaten like snap beans, Yard Long beans are of a different species and actually more closely related to Southern cowpea or black-eyed pea as well as mung beans. Beautiful purple flowers open in the morning beginning in midsummer.

Sowing Inside

Not recommended; bean seedlings are sensitive to root disturbance.

Sowing Outside

RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 65°F, ideally 70°–85°F. Successive Sowings: Every 7 to 14 days up to 80 days before your average first fall frost date. NOTE: In very hot summer areas, skip sowing as high heat approaches; temperatures consistently above 90°F will prevent beans from forming.
