Mosaic Yard Long Bean (Heirloom 65 Days)

Chinese Heirloom

Lavender, pink, and mint colors blend together on these gorgeous long pods. The Mosaic Yard Long Bean has a more dense texture and intense bean flavor than green beans.  An excellent choice to use in an edible ornamental garden on a trellis, where you can watch the beautiful flowers grow before your eyes into pods. The Mosaic Yard Long Bean begins harvesting at 10-12”, before pods plump up; if you do miss some the mature beans can be shelled then cooked like peas. 

50 seeds



Vigna unguiculata

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures are 75-85ºF

Seed Sowing Depth:1” deep 

Outside Sowing: After the last frost with soil temperatures above 70ºF.  Sow 3- 4” apart for trellis/pole growth. Planting in soil under 60ºF results in poor germination. 

How much does a packet plant:10-12 foot single row 

Harvest: Before the seeds bulge and beans snap easily. Pick continually every 2-3 days to prolong production.

Tips: Grow in light, well-drained soil, provide adequate, even moisture, especially at flowering time. Dry soil can result in low yields and fibrous pods. Do not over-fertilize the Mosaic Yard Long Bean with nitrogen, which results in a surplus of foliage and low, delayed pod growth.
