Am looking forward to growing and tasting these beans. The quality are - as usual high and would expect near 100% germination.
Asparagus bean or yard long bean, can be eaten raw or cooked. Best eaten younger, but can reach 50cms in length. Grow protected as needs some heat. Try is in a stir fry or sautéed and have a mild asparagus flavour.
