Description

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. 80 days to maturity on average. Pole beans have approximately 1 seed per gram.

Yard Long Bean

These beans remind me of summer and my grandfather and great uncle. They both came from Bari and would grow these beans. We would have them with a light tomato sauce and spaghetti. Last year I made them with the Supermarzanos and Linguine Fini from Barilla. I have raised beds - each year I amend with compost and bags of new soil. I also mix in a timed release dry fertilizer. I soak the beans over night in water I plant in a line I put two beans in each hole I space each bean 1.5’ apart When the beans are tall enough to send out their tendrils - I put long poles spaced evenly and help the beans to grow up the pole. They are very easy to grow, but once they start coming you need to stay on top of them and not let them get too big to where you can see the seeds. You want them the size of a Harricot Vert.

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
