Mosaic Yard Long Bean (Heirloom 65 Days)

Chinese Heirloom

Lavender, pink, and mint colors blend together on these gorgeous long pods. They have 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. Begin 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

 

PLANTING

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 with nitrogen which results in a surplus of foliage and low, delayed pod growth.

    I recommend this product

    Pretty, but not very productive

    I've grown all varieties of long bean, as they tolerate the heat and humidity here. However, the Mosaic Long Bean has been the least hardy and prolific of all the long beans I've tried. I would recommend that if you live in a hot humid climate, that you try another variety of long bean. My favorite is the red noodle.
