Product Description - Organic Long Beans Seeds - Open Pollinated

 Organic Long Beans Seeds are a fast-growing, high-yielding vining bean from subtropical Asia that thrives in the sun. Every plant produces slender, dark green pods containing 10-20 seeds. These sweet, crunchy pods are stunningly stingless and special. Legumes are a definitive source of calcium and iron and add nitrogen to the soil. They are tall climbing plants with a life span of less than a year. Many pollinators, such as ants attract the plant. Long Beans take a longer time to mature.

 Benefits/Uses of Long Beans 

  • Decreases the reabsorption of cholesterol-binding bile acids in the colon; fibre-rich food has also reduced LDL-cholesterol levels.
  • One of the most acceptable sources of folate is fresh -long beans.
  • Fresh beans provide a decent amount of vitamin C and help develop immunity to battle diseases, preserve blood vessel elasticity, and provide some cancer defence when adequately given in the diet.
  • Besides, long beans are excellent sources of vitamin-A because they preserve the quality of the mucosa, enhance the complexion of the skin, and improve night vision.
  • Average quantities of minerals including iron, copper, manganese, calcium, magnesium are also given by long beans.

Planting and care of  Long Beans 

Sowing  Long Beans seeds

  • Long beans grow in heat and humidity and should be directly sown when the weather is mild and the soil temperature is at least 75 degrees F.
  • Start by sowing seeds one to two inches wide, with a gap between plants of three to four inches.
  • Ensure the soil is fertile and thoroughly worked;  Long beans will withstand acidic soils and need maximum sunlight. Water them often in such a way that they do not wilt in the light.
  • Due to the nature of the vine, help, such as a trellis, will be required. Pods are growing long and slightly heavy so that they will need strong support.
  • Plant the seeds 1" deep.
  • The rows should be 3-4' apart.
  • Keep the soil moist until germination occurs within 7-10 days.

Growing Long Beans 

  • To reach maturity, the pods take two to three months, at which stage they should be one to three feet long everywhere.
  •  If pods start to reach this size, they should be harvested each day to promote development on the vine.
  • To sustain its vigorous vining habit, this type of bean needs to be trained on trellis-like creeper nets that also work well.
  • Long beans prefer elevated temperatures, so security may be required if cold weather threatens.
  • Provided that the pods' growth is stunted by dry weather, water the plants if the soil dries out completely.
  • Look out for aphids, which can be a problem and mites.

Harvesting  Long Beans 

  • These beans will be ready for harvest approximately 60 days after they are planted.
  • Pick these beans for eating fresh at a length of 15-20" for the best taste and tenderness.
  • Check the vines regularly because the beans proliferate. It is possible to dry fully mature beans and use them as soup beans.
  • When used immediately, fresh beans are best but can be stored for many days in the refrigerator.

Precautions while growing  Long Beans 

Enable the pods to fully mature on the vine and dry.

Take the plants and allow them to continue to dry under shelter if frost or rainy weather threatens before your beans are dry. A successful drying method hangs them from their roots upside down until the seeds rattle in the pods and become hard.

Common problems affecting  Long Beans and solutions

 Long Beans are affected by damage caused by viruses and fungi. Use of Trichoderma Viride Bio Fertilizer is recommended.

By killing infected plant materials and controlling aphids, whiteflies, leafhoppers and beetles that act as virus vectors, virus control is helped

Long Beans are often relatively pest-free; however, the bean shoot fly and the bean pod fly can hinder plant growth and pods development.

It is recommended to use a bio pest controller for biting and sucking pests for improved benefits.
