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.
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.
Here is AdrianaG's photo for anyone who could not see it in the above post:

Did you do the same thing this year with the beans AdrianaG?
