They are vine? You let them continue grow together in the pot?

Hi,
Long beans are heavy feeder,need a lot of water and fertilizer(chicken poo) and they need to climb on some sticks or platform.
if the vine gets too bushy, you can pluck out some huge and young leaves, cook with yellow needles,add fish ball and prawns taste very nice.
removing extra leaves,not only can eat but also to encourage more flowers and produce more long beans.

Jong Jong,
There are also non vine variety which does not need space/structure for the plant to twine and can be grown anywhere where there are sufficient light

Hi,harvest the beans before it turn soft when you gently press on it, once it turn soft is consider to old to eat, it will lost it cruchy feel when you eat it.
if it does turn soft, don't pluck it, let it dry and keep the seeds for future growing.
