Planting+
Yard-long seeds require no prior treatment but steeping them in lukewarm water for 12 hours will encourage germination.
Care+
Yard-long bean is a vigorous climbing bean that requires training up canes. At an early stage after planting train the bean’s tendrils onto the canes. If they don’t automatically attach themselves use garden twine to help them especially if it is windy. Water extra in dry periods only and keep the beds free of weeds to encourage good plant growth. The flowers will only appear after 21st of June (shorter days).
Specifics+
Originally from India, these beans need heat and now grow all over the tropics where they definitely grow to 1 metre (approx. 1 yard) long. Yard longs are very similar to French Beans but are somewhat firmer, thinner, rather spicy tasting and much longer!
