How to Grow Kurosanjaku Bean
Germinate seeds on a moist paper towel before planting. Kurosanjaku Bean seeds are direct sown in soil of at least 60℉ where there is no risk of frost. Grow in a warm, sunny spot. Sow indoors 2-3 weeks before outdoor planting for an earlier harvest. Be sure to harden off well if indoor sowing. Young seedlings do not tolerate shock. If you live in a warm climate plant seeds every 3-4 weeks for multiple harvests. Keep soil moist in the early days. It is best to train the vines to climb strings or supports as they grow. Yard Long Beans are generally low maintenance.
Harvesting Kurosanjaku Bean
Harvest when pods are smooth, tender and 14-18" long; usually in midsummer. Pods, seeds, stems, and leaves are all edible!
Yard Long Beans may replace string beans in most culinary scenarios. Pods can be deep-fried, stir-fried, steamed, or used in soups. Their thin size makes them cook quite rapidly. Traditionally used in Szechuan recipes, prepare the pods by cutting them into 2" sections. Lightly steam the leaves and stems, then toss with olive oil for a nutritious side.
Tips From Our Gardeners
“In my opinion, nothing is more satisfying than that familiar crunch you get from green beans after a long day’s harvest. Kurosanjaku yard-long beans are among the most well-loved varieties for this reason.”
