If you’ve never eaten green snake beans, you’re missing a real treat. They are among the sweetest and tenderest of the bean varieties. You can pick them, wash them, put them in a pot of boiling water and add some seasoning, & 10 minutes later serve them to your family. These beans grow from 75 to 90 cm long but are best at about 30cm. They are also called asparagus green beans or yard long beans. A vigorous climbing annual the plant begins to produce long pods, 60 days after sowing. The pods hang in pairs that should be picked for vegetable uses before matured. It is, however, sensitive to the temperature and grows relatively slow in mild-cold environments. Sow spring, summer.
