HEIRLOOM Also known as asparagus bean, the longest we got were close to two feet. Four foot vines are very heavy and need a strong support. Pretty pink flowers, like a small sweet pea, produce the long slender beans. Taste splits the difference between the flavor of a bean and that of asparagus. Best picked at about a foot in length for tenderness. 90 seeds.

Best picked at about a foot in length for tenderness. 90 seeds. PLANTING: Outside- Bush type: 1” deep and 4-6” apart with soil temperatures above 60 degrees and after the last frost. Planting under 60 degrees results in poor germination. Pole type: Plant 1” deep and 3- 4” apart for trellis/pole growth. Drying type: 1” deep and 5-6” apart. Leave beans on the plant until the leaves are falling and pods are dry and withered Harvest- Before the seeds bulge and beans snap easily. Pick continually to prolong production. Tips- Water well during hot dry period and do not over fertilize which results in a surplus of foliage and low, delayed pod growth. Adding inoculant at planting time aids in a larger harvest and more robust plants. Plant seeds every 2-3 weeks for continual harvest throughout the summer.
