Climbing French Bean Yard Long

Description

Climbing French Bean seeds "Yard Long" is a type of Oriental bean, also known as Asparagus Bean.It has a vigorous climbing habit reaching a height of 2.5 metres. As the name would suggest the pods are very long, (up to 45cm) round, thin and stringless; as well as being very tasty! This variety can be grown outside but thrives best in large poly tunnels or glasshouses. Climbing beans such as this variety should be supported in much the same way as runner beans would be.

 

This family of beans is frost tender and cannot be sown until the weather has warmed up.
