Bean Yard Long Stringa a Grano Bruno (57-31)

Size *
Current stock: 0


Yard Long Bean. This bean is very popular in Italy. Sets a long, slim and crisp bean with good taste. It needs warm weather, so do not seed until soil has warmed up well, around the same time you would set out tomatoes or a week or so after the last frost date. A vigorous grower, it needs support so use tripods, poles or trellis. Plant  3-4 seeds around the base of each pole and thin to one. For a trellis, plant 2 seeds every six inches and thin to one. Keep picking to encourage production.

grows well, no beans yet

So far, so good. Not every seed germinated, but over 50% did and the plants are going well. I don't have any beans yet and it will probably be another month, but I'm happy so far

The BEST Green Bean around which wins in the "ease in growing", hardiness, production & superb flavor! : )

My family and I have exclusively been growing this bean for approx. 15+years. The reason why it's still in our garden after all of these years is because, for the same effort of growing any other "common bean" you get waaaaaaaaay more production/flavor. They are such a pleasure to grow and we literally "drool with anticipation" ha,ha,ha over the first beans to be seen in the garden! Our favorite way to eat them is, lightly cooked with butter and garlic. But they are just as tasty without and can hold their own in the flavor department! From a survival/self reliance standpoint they are most excellent due to the fact that they are easily dehydrated, simply storing in food grade buckets as you get a lot of healthy food easily stored away for emergencies, winter use... So in fact they can also be called a very GREEN bean... no need to process via electricity when you can string them up to dry. Ours have been growing in the Midwest USA Region quite successfully, and some strains are cold hardier than others (that is the one we grow Orient Wonder). This one on SOI isn't strain/variety specific? We haven't grown the Seeds Of Italy Yard Long Bean seeds ourselves, but I can guarantee that you definitely won't regret it!!! : )
