Red noodle bean (Vigna unguiculata ‘Red Noodle’) is a twining vine to about 8 feet tall. Its pale tan to lavender flowers mature into very slender, straight, deep red pods that reach 12 to 18 inches long. They’re eaten fresh and said to have good flavor, but I haven’t yet tried it myself; I grow this mainly as an ornamental in my own garden. It can make a fun “living curtain” on an arbor and combines beautifully with other annual vines, such as pretzel bean (Vigna unguiculata ‘Pretzel Bean’), hyacinth bean (Lablab purpureus), or Spanish flag (Mina lobata). Full sun is best. Annual.
Harvested in 2020. At least 12 seeds.
