Vigna unguiculata For growing information, refer to the Pole Bean culture below.

POLE BEAN CULTURE: In the early days, pole beans were planted at the base of rough wooden poles where the vines clung to the bark as they twined upward. Today most gardeners grow pole beans on trellises. To make a trellis, stretch 2 wires between 2 stout posts. The first wire should be about 10 inches above the ground and the second wire at about 5-6 feet. Tie bean string to 1 wire and begin making a V-shaped trellis by zigzagging the string between the 2 wires and wrapping around each wire about every 8 inches. Rough string will stimulate the bean vine's twining habit. See Garden Supplies for bean string and other trellising supplies. Sow seeds along the bottom of the trellis, in rows 3-4 feet apart. If planting to grow on poles, plant 6 seeds at the base of each pole. Grow and fertilize like bush beans.
HARVEST: Due to their continuous growth habit, pole beans are always at different stages of development. Keep the plants well picked to increase overall yields. A 15-20 foot row feeds a family of 4. Plant more for canning or freezing.
SEED SPECS: Minimum germination standard: 80%. Usual seed life: 2-3 years.

I have in the past tried several times to grow yard long Beans. The regular ones do not seem to do well in my generally cool area. This summer was hot and long may account for thins purple noodle beans doing well this year.. put regardless of why they did well producing pounds of beans. They were slow (100 day) compared to Blue lakes but in the end they are produces like gang busters. Pounds of long beans more then I can eat...

We love trying new seeds and grew Red Noodle Beans for the first time this year. In spite of 25 days of no rain, then many days of too much rain, these bean have produced very nicely. But I was expecting a better taste. I find these to be bland and on the dry side. I picked some at stir fry size, but they proved tough to eat. I have fixed them with new potatoes, like regular green beans, and find this is the best way. I picked some to take to Farmer's Market but no one was interested. I am finding many folks do not like to try new things. So the ones I picked for market on Friday, I had planned to can today. Alas, they were very dried out. I salvaged a few to freeze. Would I buy these seeds again? Probably not. Pretty to look at, but we're after the taste!
