Asparagus Bean Vigna unguiculata sesquipidalis. Asparagus Bean seeds are also known as yard long beans. This attractive plant is botanically different from regular pole beans and bears the tongue-twisting Latin name Vigna unguiculata sesquipidalis. At first this plant appears to grow as a bush, but when summer heat comes along, it bursts into vertical growth with twisting vines, and purple flowers, followed by fast-growing pods that are meant to be harvested at 60-65cm (24-26?) in length. Even at that amazing size, the beans are just over 1cm (??) thick, tender, and tasty. These beans feature prominently in Asian cuisines, and are most productive in hot weather. Start indoors mid-spring, and transplant as soon as the soil warms up at the solstice.

Matures in 95 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
