OK, I'm in the middle of planning the garden and I was looking at beans. I read about these. They are most commonly called "Chinese Long Beans", but also go by "Snake Beans" and "Asparagus Beans" and "Yard Long Beans".
What appeals to me is that they grow a lot of beans in a smaller space. Their length (they can grow up to 3 feet long!) means that a few beans harvested can be cut into smaller pieces to make a whole serving of green beans. That would be really great in our limited space garden this season.
The catalogs say they have a great flavor and I found some delicious looking recipes using them. After some Googling, I even found that they are supposed to grow very well in our area and are relatively pest free. It's all appealing to my garden plans but I'm wondering if anyone out there has grown these and can give some real first hand advice in the comments below?
