SNAKE BEAN – Black Seeded

(20 seeds)

$4.50

(6 customer reviews)

Spectacularly long bean pods with black seeds

Snake beans are just spectacular! And those elongated pods have a strong, rich flavour too. The black-seeded variety has long been a favourite in Asian cooking and if you like your beans lightly cooked and a little bit crunchy (who doesn’t?) it’s the ideal choice for stir fires or as a late addition to soups, stews and casseroles. Grow them near a fence or provide support so that they can climb as nature intended them too and wow your family with absolutely unbelievable beans.

It is best to harvest beans once the pods are about the thickness of a pencil. Harvest daily to increase production and try to eat or preserve immediately to enjoy the best flavour.
