Product Specification

Of all the different types of pulses, Runner Beans are probably the most popular variety for home growing. There is nothing quite like the fresh taste of your just picked beans, from your very own garden, with your dinner! Hestia is an ideal variety to grow in pots or containers because it produces beautiful red and white flowers followed by 18/20cm slim, stringless runner beans on bushy plants. It is early to crop and often before standard types of runner bean.,

HANDY TIP

HANDY TIP
FOR FLOWER DROP Percy Thrower thought that the main cause was slightly acid soil. He recommended applying a dusting of lime to the soil in early winter over the area set aside for runner beans the next year, so that it would get washed into the topsoil by the winters rain. We have tried it and it does work.
NUTRITIONAL VALUE
A good source of Vitamin C, Folic acid and Iron. High fibre content.
