A few weeks back I posted about how I am growing Chinese Yardlong beans. Many of you were curious about these beans and asked what they tasted like and how to cook them. I grew up eating these so it's very familiar to me, but I failed to realize that it's not a vegetable commonly seen in American grocery stores. They are usually sold in Asian markets. They are also called Asparagus beans, but I'm not sure why they call it that. Maybe because they are long and slender like an Asparagus? How I would describe this bean is that it is just like a very long green bean / string bean / pole bean. It's just very long.
In my opinion, growing these are better than growing regular green beans because harvesting one bean is like harvesting three regular sized green beans. Less to harvest and more food = heaven!!
