About yardlong beans
Yardlong beans, also known as asparagus beans, are a legume cultivated for their moderately sized green pods containing immature seeds. They are similar to a green bean, but much longer and from an entirely different family. However, despite the fact that they are called "yardlong," they aren't actually one yard long. In fact, they are much closer to about half a yard long, or 1.5 feet. The pods grow on a climbing vine in tropical areas such as the warmer parts of South Asia, Southeast Asia, and Southern China. The beans can grow up to 12 feet tall when supported with a trellis or a fence.
You may know of the beans from their many other names; asparagus beans, long-podded cowpea, Chinese long bean, snake bean, and pea bean are all common names. The beans have a mild flavor, similar to the asparagus we know and love, and can be used in similar ways to the green bean.
