A very productive climbing or trailing vine, producing pods that are typically 51cm (20in) long. The pods must be harvested before they become stringy. Is disease-resistant. Thrives in hot humid climates. Soil should be warm (20-22C/68-72F) at planting. Grows best in full sunlight with daytime temperatures of 25-35C (77-95F) and night time temperatures not falling below 15C (59F). Yard long beans will grow and produce poorly in the mid-elevation tropics or in temperate climates.
