This broad bean variety has been grown since before the time of Christ. But it’s no museum piece for all that – the flavourful beans can be picked young and eaten as snap beans, or you can allow the pods to mature for a nutritious harvest of bean seeds for soups and stews. You can also risk sowing them early thanks to their tolerance of frost. Eat like your ancestors!

  • Growing Information

    How to Sow

    Bush bean plants can sometimes produce pods all at once so it's important to stagger the sowing of seed across the entire growing seasons to avoid a glut and ensure that fresh beans are always available to pick. Whilst staking is not always required for these plants, pod laden plants may fall over so using a modest stake is advisable. As with all beans, sow directly into a rich soil and keep mulched to improve water retention. When sowing do not allow soil to get too wet and seeds are prone to rot.

    How to Harvest

    It is best to harvest beans once the pods are about the thickness of a pencil and roughly 10cm long. Harvest daily to increase production and try to eat or preserve immediately to enjoy the best flavour.

    Bean There Done That

    The beans have all germinated and are currently flowering well . I expect to be picking a bumper crop of succulent beans over an extended growing period. I planted the beans in both a raised garden bed as well as some 100 litre potato bags following a success crop of lovely spuds. As I still have seeds left over I will sow a succession crop to ensure that i have lovely beans during our peak growing season (Autumn and Winter here in the sub tropics). My dwarf tomato seeds (Gondwana lightning and Sweat Sue) have germinated in the punnets and will be ready for planting out late Summer for the peak growing season.
    loking forward to getting more seeds next year.
