Bean Pole Yard Long Orient Wonder Seeds

Bean Pole Yard Long Orient Wonder Seeds

Vigna sesquipedalis

Item #0246

80 Days. Known in the Orient as "dau gok", Orient Wonder is a delicious and beautiful dark green pole bean. Seeds are slow to develop, so pods stay smooth and slender. Orient Wonder is of sub-tropical origin, but is better suited than other varieties for production in the U.S. It's easy to grow, and almost indestructible. Beans are best harvested 12" to 18" long, even though they can grow as long as 30".

This packet sows one 5 to 7-foot row or two small bean teepees. See inside for instructions on how to build a bean teepee.

When to start inside: Not recommended.

Harvesting: Harvest when beans are 12" - 18" long and about half as thick as a regular bean. Harvesting when beans are bigger will decrease yields and discourage continuous production. At season's end, plants are great compost material if not diseased.
