Product description

Southern Exposure Seed Exchange - One of the earliest maturing asparagus beans. Like most black-seeded varieties it does well in the North and the South. Since it is day-neutral, in the South it can be planted for early market sales, late for a fall harvest, or year-round in the greenhouse. Green pods up to 23 in. long, but are best picked at 18 in. or smaller (less than pencil-width). A market favorite. Vigna unguiculata ssp. sesquipedalis
