Red Noodle Bean seeds are direct sown in the late spring or summer after the last frost in a warm, sunny spot. Sow indoors 2-3 weeks before outdoor planting for an earlier harvest. Be sure to harden off well if indoor sowing. Plant in waves every 3-4 weeks for multiple harvests if you live in a warm climate. Keep soil moist in the early days. Fertilization might not be needed at all. Keep a close eye for spider mites if growing in a sheltered spot. Train the vines to climb strings or supports as they grow. Try planting arugula at the base and interplanting with bitter melon vines for increased pest resistance, quick growth, and efficient use of space.
