I planted the Asparagus Bean and it is real skinny. Does the bean fill out like regular green beans?

Asparagus bean, or Yard-Long bean, will remain pencil thin at maturity. The beans inside will swell only slightly so you won't see many bulges in ready to harvest asparagus beans. They're really tasty, though, so harvest some and cook them just like you would regular green beans.
