80 days.This is the most stunning and unique bean I have grown yet. Fantastic deep red 18-inch pods are so delicious, full of nutrition, and they even keep most their color when sauteed! Long vines produce all summer and do well under many conditions. This incredible variety will draw lots of attention in your home garden or at market. We are so excited to offer this unique Chinese ethnic variety that produces fairly early. Small red seeds.

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).
