Bean - Oriental Yard Long - Green - Pole (Vigna unguiculata var. sesquipedalis) Non GMO Yard Long Beans Vegetable
The Oriental Yard Long produces bean pods that can grow to be anywhere from one to three feet long! Each plant grows in a unique way, and are fascinating to watch as they grow. Yard-long beans have a taste similar to that of a green bean
