Tax included.

Also known as Chinese long bean, snake bean, yard bean, yard long bean, asparagus bean


This is a dwarf/bush variety of long beans, growing plants up to 40cm tall. The beans are green in colour and grow around 30-40cm long. They have a distinct nutty flavour – what I love most about long beans. They’re a very prolific variety and are great if you’re short on vertical space. The seeds have been locally grown & saved for years through my family.
