Yard long beans


The compound leaves of this plant are bright green, with three heart-shaped leaflets. The flowers and  resulting bean pods usually form in joined pairs.  Flowers look as you’d expect of a legume (papilionaceous) with five petals, the largest on  top. The size and color will vary with variety—either white, pink, or lavender. 

Yardlong beans live up to their name,  often growing up to 3 feet in length, although they are usually eaten before they reach their  mature size. They are especially popular in Chinese and other Asian cuisines, with a taste that is  less astringent than string beans (Phaseolus vulgaris).
