810 – Red Noodle

$3.00

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.

PLANT HEIGHT

PLANT SPACING
Pole beans need support of a trellis or fence. Plant seeds 1″ to 2″ deep, 5-6″ apart, in rows 4′ apart within an inch or two of the trellis or pole. For a tepee method, plant 6 to 7 seeds around each pole.

HARDINESS ZONES
Does best in warm climates, but did well in the Turtle Tree Gardens (zone 5b) with good trellising. Beans are NOT hardy and will die with light frost.

HARVEST
Harvest young beans when they are about 10 inches long–if they get too old, they are tough, rather than crisp and tender.

COMPANION PLANTING
As beans fix nitrogen, they pair well with many other crops especially beets, celery & celeriac, cabbage, potatoes, leeks, and radishes. Strong scented herbs planted near beans may discourage bean beetle.

USES & COOKING SUGGESTIONS

We like these best in stir-fries or in Thai coconut curries where they hold their deep burgundy color. It is best to cook these beans fairly lightly so they retain a good crunch. The flavor sometimes has an almost radishy character, mixed with the beaniness it’s just delicious!
