Mottled Taiwan Long Bean

Mottled Taiwan Long Bean


This unique looking long bean was brought back from Taiwan where it is offered by the seed company Known You Seed under the name 'Farmer's Friend'. It is a climbing vine that needs trellising. Unlike most long beans, which are either pale or dark green or red, these are light green/cream colored with red/purple mottling. The beans are not as long as some varieties and are "meatier" as well.
