Colorful Asparagus Beans

'Chinese Red Noodle' asparagus bean

Asparagus beans are the oriental version of our popular pole bean. They love warm weather, growing vigorously and producing an abundance of long, thin, crunchy beans with small seeds. They are also called yard-long beans because the beans can grow 2 to 3 feet long.

Now come some yard-long beans of a different color. 'Chinese Mosaic' features 12- to 18-inch-long thin, seedless, lavender-pink-colored pods. 'Chinese Red Noodle' produces deep red, 18-inch-long pods that keep their color even after cooking. 'Thai Red-Seeded' features 24-inch-long pods that have red, speckled seeds. If you don't have room for pole asparagus beans, try 'Kentucky Bush'. It produces 10-inch-long asparagus beans on 24-inch-tall plants.
