Certified Biodynamic and Organic

Long, burgundy, noodle-like beans form out of beautiful pale lilac blossoms on vigorously climbing vines. This Asian noodle bean performed very well in our garden and cooking trials. Does best in warm climates, but also did fairly well in the cool, rainy NY summer.
