Climbing Bean - Red Noodle Snake - Certified Organic Seeds

Climbing Bean - Red Noodle Snake - Certified Organic Seeds

(Vigna unguiculata)

Red Noodle Snake Bean is a rare climbing bean to 2m tall and produces pods up to 70cm with a deep red colour. Extremely fast grower with a long harvest period. Holds it's colour when cooked, perfect in fresh salads or saute with other vegetables.

Climbing beans as their name indicates need a structure for them to climb on. This can be anything from a wire fence, verandah or teepee made from tomato stakes, bamboo or even sturdy sticks. They like soil rich in organic matter but they are a legume so ensure nitrogen levels are not to high. Sow your seeds below the climbing structure to give the tendrils a easy job of latching on. Ensure you do not over water them during the germination stage as this may cause rotting. Once germinated provide a good mulch later around the plant. During the growing season you may need to assist the plant with latching onto your structure.

Eat beans whole either fresh or cooked. All beans are best eaten when young and string less, for snake beans this is typically between 40-50cm in length.


How To Sow

Sow direct in 2cm of soil 6cm apart, in rows 60cm apart. This bean loves a trellis so sow bean direct just next to a climbing structure.
