Red Pod Asparagus Bean
Vigna unquiculata 'Red Pod'
Duration: Annual
When to Sow: Spring Ease of Germination: Easy
A red-podded variation on the yardlong or asparagus bean. The long beans are like young string beans without the annoying string. The deep magenta colour persists with cooking. The sweet and mild flavour is reminiscent of asparagus, mushrooms, and beans. Excellent for stir fries. Grow like pole beans or on a trellis and sow in June when the ground is warm. Yields can be huge if pods are picked often to encourage more to come. Tolerates hot weather well. 75 days.
