This noodle bean reaches 20-30 inches long! Fun for kids’ gardens or dramatic effect in edible landscaping. The impossibly long pods make a statement in the garden, dripping chandelier-like from lush vines and seeming to growing inches a day! Beyond its ornamental value, the beans are tender, flavorful and highly nutritious -- high in vitamin B, C, and protein. The plants love the intense heat of summer, producing profusions of pods as the temperatures creep into the high 90s.
