Bean "Snake Red Dragon" 20 Seeds

Vigna unguiculata subsp. sesquipedalis

Red Dragon produces 60-70cm long, dark green slender pods with a small red/brown tip. The seed is red coloured. Red Dragon is mid maturity compared to other varieties, and grows very vigorously into a 2-3 metre plant. Red Dragon is highly productive and will pick for approx 4 weeks. Seed development in the pod is slow, and the pods are fleshly and nice to eat. This variety of snake beans is suitable for anyone interested in growing snake beans.

Grow beans up fences, trellis, sweet corn, trees. Almost anywhere can be 'vertically productive'.

Keep well watered and pick regularly to encourage new flowers. Watch out for snails, as they will eat through the stems near ground level, and will completely eat newly sprouted beans. If you have nice new beans plants one day, and none the next, then it is probably slugs or snails.
