Red Noodle Yard Long Bean (85 days, Heirloom)

Germ 4-10 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



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.

Red noodle yard long bean

I love red noodle.. It isn't quite as productive as the green, and has a slightly lower germination rate . However, the taste is great, and the red color is retained even after cooking. It's the best in a green/red/yellow mix. If I can only have one yard long bean, red noodle is it.

Big, long, and bug-resistant

I was impressed with how much thicker the red asparagus beans are than the green ones. The flavor is much milder in the red than the green as well. The Japanese beetles left them alone. I did have stink bugs, but they were easy to remove by hand into soapy water; and, frankly, the stink bugs were thick on everything this year. People I shared them with raved over their flavor as well.

New one for me.

Received seeds, had their space all ready for them. Had to wait a month before planting due to our unnaturally cool spring weather. Planted 1 May already plants are 13 inches tall. Growing nicely. No flowers yet. Have survived our first 2 100 degree days with no wilting or droopiness. Cant wait for first harvest.

Retains color even when cooked which is why I love this bean. Decent germination rate, fairly prolific, and a nice "béany" flavor.
