Long slender pods
Easy to grow
Instructions - In late spring, once night temperatures stay securely above 55°F (13°C), plant seeds in well-worked, fertile soil in full sun. Erect strong stakes, tripod poles, or trellis at planting time to support vines. Plant 1 in. deep & 4 inches apart along a trellis; around tripods or stakes, plant 4 to 6 seeds about 4 in. from each pole, thinning seedlings to 3 best plants per pole. Do not plant too early as cold conditions prevent good germination & growth. For the best yields, pick beans frequently, at least every 2 or 3 days. Harvest these astonishingly long, crispy pods when beans are still pencil thin, the pods snap when bent & before the seeds have filled out inside; generally when about 12 to 18 inches long. If the pods get too thick & bulky, they will be fibrous & tough.
