Are my Chinese Red noodle beans done before they even started?
This last summer, I almost thought my Chinese Red Noodle beans (Vigna unguiculata) were done before they even started. They were late to germinate, slow to grow, and the leaves turned an unappealing yellow by the time the vines were 6 inches tall.
What are the best beans to mix with noodles?
Red noodle beans, a variety of Chinese long beans, are perfect to mix in along with potatoes, onions, and carrots. Long beans are sturdier than a green bean and are best when picked young in the garden. In the pot above, beans are rinsed and cut into shorter 3-4 inch segments.
