I am not sure why they are called asparagus beans. They should be called two foot long beans. The smallest bean we had was two feet long. The flavor is that of a standard green bean and the plants are a standard, vining bean plant. Easy to grow on simple supports.

Why is this bean so attractive to me? They take up no more space than a regular bean plant and produce the same number of beans, but each bean is so much larger than a regular green bean. So, each plant produces more food without using more garden area or inputs.
This one is a keeper. Add it to your list for your next gardening season.
