Orient Wonder Pole Bean

70 days. AKA the Yard-long Bean, Asparagus Bean, Noodle Bean or Snake Bean, this wonder can reach 36" long but we suggest that you harvest them at 18" for the best flavor and tender texture. A Japanese import, it has bright, rich green string-less pods with a distinct, nutty Bean-Pea flavor. Because its seeds develop slowly, it has a long harvest season and since its vines can ramble up to 10 feet long, it should be trellised to avoid a garden traffic jam! (OP.)

One packet of about 175 seeds

  • Information
  • Vertically-growing Pole Beans are as perfect for small space gardens as they are in larger potagers accented with decorative supportive architecture. Before sowing seed in the spring, first install the structures through which they will weave their wondrous vines and yield their coveted Beans. Help train them as they grow for maximum coverage and harvest. Beans are native to South America: sow when soil has reliably warmed to 60°F or by the last frost date. Harvest straight to the kitchen at their optimal size for eating, usually when small. Pick filet types when thin. Don't wait until seeds form in their tender pods because by then, the sweetness, not to mention the tender-crispness, is lost.

    Average seed life: 2-3 years.
