75 days. Very long pods grow to 24"! Very tender and tasty; no strings, small seeds; huge yields on 10' vines. They grow well under almost any conditions, very resistant to heat, humidity and insects; great for the South. Pick for snap beans when 12"-14" long; delicious stir-fried! The 'Vigna' genus does well for us all summer at Baker Creek.

After frost, when soil has warmed, sow 1-2 inches deep, 4-6 inches apart in rows where plants are to grow. Vigorous climbers need full sun and a trellis or other support. Takes heat and humidity better than common beans; recommended for the Deep South. Keep the pods picked to maintain production. Drought tolerant, but more productive with adequate moisture. The pods are stringless and tender, and taste best sauteed (not boiled).
