Description

This is a productive bush snake bean that loves growing in the heat, unlike other fresh beans.

 

Botanical name: Vigna unguiculata ssp. sesquipedalis

Planting: Plant in November after risk of frost and the soil is warm. Plant 30 cm apart in good, friable soil.

Care: water regularly when the weather is dry.

Harvest: Harvest the immature pods when the seeds haven’t started showing through the pod.

Diseases: I haven’t had any problems with pests or diseases with mine

Cooking: steam quickly or stir fry. They don’t need much cooking and are not pleasant when over cooked.

Seed Saving: Snake beans are self pollinating and the flowers are pollinated before they open so they won’t cross with other pea varieties even if they are near.
