Red Noodle Yard Long Bean (Heirloom 85 Days)


Red seeds produce high yields of 16-20” long burgundy colored beans that turn green when cooked. Has a very pleasant sweet flavor.

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

Great beans

We love the Red Noodle Yard Long Beans. They have a great flavor and are prolific. They are easy to grow on a trellis. We first planted them just to try them out and they are now a regular part of the garden.

Plants loved by Rabbits

I bought these seeds and they grew beautifully. I planted them on a trellis and I was so excited to see them grow up. Unfortunately, the plants themselves are very tasty for some animal. It ate the stems and the plants died all the way up the trellises. The same animal ate all of the bush beans, but it apparently has no appetite for Romano bean plants, so I at least was able to eat something. I will try hot pepper spray in the spring to see if I can finally get some yard long beans. Or I might try screens around the base of the trellis. The plants are beautiful and vigorous when growing.

my favorite pole bean varieties

I plant 16ft of pole beans on 7ft tall hog panels every year, and I like a variety, both for flavor, texture, and to cover bases for seasonal growing variances. After trying many varieties, the ones that I go back to every year are: Rattlesnake, Fortex, Carminat, Red Noodle, Yard Long, and Goldmarie. If I had to limit myself to one, I would pick the Rattlesnake, at least for our Sacramento climate. It's always the first and last to harvest, heavy crops, tastes great, is more forgiving in picking size, and easier to pick due to the purple mottled color, which stands out better among the leaves. Yard Long beans are fun, and you can use them as a base for a meal, instead of pasta. They add a nice texture variety. Also great for stir fry, since they are skinny. These purple ones add even more variety, and are easy to pick because of the color.
