Product Specification

Luckily, this variety is easier to grow than pronounce. It is one of the most attractive beans with bright green flat pods splashed with red which disappear on cooking. It can be used as a flageolet type. Climbing beans such as this variety should be supported in the same way as you would support runner beans. This family of beans is frost tender and cannot be sown until the weather has warmed up.,
Seed Count: 75,
WHEN TO SOW

April to June
WHERE TO SOW
Early sowings in individual pots or modules in glasshouse or cold frame. Alternatively, sown outside in early May, sow two seeds 5cm (2") deep and 20cm (8") apart with 60cm (24") between rows outside.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
Glasshouse seedlings should be gradually hardened off before planting outside in late May to the spacings above with a support cane at each planting station. Reduce outside sowings to single plants. Circular plantings can be made with canes joined at the centre to form a wigwam.
MATURITY
July onwards
HANDY TIP
The beans can be harvested like a flageolet type and cooked or be left to ripen and stored as an attractive winter dry bean.
NUTRITIONAL VALUE
A good source of vitamins A, K and folic acid.
