Trailing Long Beans (Zi 28-2)

Squeekie(Quebec, Canada)July 2, 2004

Hi there,

I bought seeds for Oriental trailing long beans (approx. 26") and wonder if anyone could give me good tips on how to grow them - and cook them! - with success.

Thanks!

Martine

Grow them in full sun.
I never have problems growing them. One of my beans measured 32 and l/2 inches. I didn't get to pick them for a few days so they got long and inedible. So pick them when they are young.

I just had my first crop...I stir-fried them with some sliced chicken meat and garlic/black bean sauce and some
onions. It was delicious.

Hope they do well for you.

Pick them when they are no thicker than a pencil and they will be tender and delicious. I'm growing mine on an arch this year and love it:

The front of the arch has European cucmbers, middle has small French cantaloupes, the back has beans.
