How to Grow You Fong Wong Beans
Pre-germinate the seeds on a moist paper towel for a head start. Yard Long Bean seeds are direct sown in soil at least 60℉ where there is a minimal risk of frost. Grow in a warm, sunny spot. Sow indoors 2-3 weeks before outdoor planting for an earlier harvest. Be sure to harden off well if indoor sowing. See our free growing guide above for how to harden off. Succession plant in waves every 3-4 weeks for more than one harvest if you live in a warm climate. Keep soil moist in the early days. Train the vines to climb strings or supports as they grow. Yard Long Beans are low maintenance.
Harvesting You Fong Wong Bean
Harvest when pods are smooth, tender, pencil-thin, and 25-30" long. Gently clip off the beans at the base of the stem. Blanch and freeze for extended use.
Pods, seeds, stems, and leaves are all edible! This type of bean is used in the popular Szechwan dish Dry Fried Beans. Try them in recipes in place of snap beans. Prepare the bean pods by cutting them into 2" sections.
Tips From Our Gardeners
“One of my favorite summer memories is when my dog, much to my surprise, pulled a bean pod right off the plant and chomped it right down! These are also nutritious for dogs.”
