Yard long beans?

Has anyone tried yard long beans? Real seeds have some dwarf ones i’m tempted by

I have had a few times. 3 seasons if I remember well.
Advice: grow them under cover or if you live on a warm(ish) climate. They also needd plenty of vertical space.
I grew them on a polytunnel and on 2 seasons they were reasonably successful. No massive crops but it was fun to grow them and cook with them.

Thanks! We live in the north with no green house so maybe best not!

Not tried a dwarf one. For me in the polytunnels the plants grow a few feet high, begin to flower, and damp off. At least with a dwarf one it would damp of earlier leaving the space to try something else. I’ve never tried them out of doors. May well have a go at this version to see whether I can finally get them to grow since it is something we buy quite regularly if we happen to be in an Asian supermarket
