This old-fashioned variety remains popular with commercial veggie growers. As a bush bean, you can grow it in containers or in the open without support. It starts bearing early, and keeps on producing over an extended harvest season. Pick them when they're young and crunchy and remember that all legumes are great soil builders.

  • 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.

    These are my back up seeds foe a second successive planting. I will plant these after the other beans start producing so that I will have a continuous crop. These will be planted into a different bed to assist with the nitrogen fixing
