A variety of asparagus beans, but with very long beans, which sometimes reach a length of 100-120 cm. Heat-loving culture, requires high supports. Very ornamental in the flowering stage and technical maturity of the fruit. Flavor qualities are very high. Resistant to diseases and pests.
Long Bean Plant Care Start Chinese long beans from seed and plant them just like a regular green bean, about ½ inch (1.3 cm.) deep and a foot (.3 m.) or so out from each other in rows or grids. Seeds will germinate between 10-15 days. Long beans prefer warm summers for maximum production. In an area such as the Pacific Northwest, a raised bed in the sunniest area of the garden should be selected for cultivation. For additional long bean plant care, be sure to transplant only once the soil has warmed, and cover the bed for the first few weeks with clear plastic row cover. Since they like warm weather, don’t be surprised if it takes awhile for them to really begin to grow and/or set flowers; it can take two to three months for the plants to flower. Just like other climbing bean varieties, Chinese long beans need support, so plant them along a fence or give them a trellis or poles to climb up. Chinese yard long beans mature rapidly and you may need to harvest the beans daily. When picking yard long beans, there is a fine line between the perfect emerald green, crunchy bean and those that are becoming soft and pale in color. Pick the beans when they are about ¼-inch (.6 cm.) wide, or as thick as a pencil. Although as mentioned, the beans can attain lengths of 3 feet, the optimal picking length is between 12-18 inches (30-46 cm.) long.
