Harvesting Period

These heavy cropping, flat, green beans can be harvested early which can start before runner beans. The beans are stringless and tender and have good resistance to common mosaic virus and Anthracnose. Grow outdoors and support in the same way as runner beans. Add to stir-fry for extra crunch. Harvest July-October. Height 200-250cm (79-98"); spread 30-40cm (12-16").

Growing Information

Sow in pots or trays on a windowsill or in a greenhouse using good quality Compost. Cover seeds with around 3.5cm of compost, Germination up to 14 days. Grow on, planting outside or protecting with cloches until the risk of frost has passed. Alternatively, sow directly into prepared weed-free soil, first erecting canes or netting to eventually support plants, sowing one seed per cane or 15-20cm apart. Grows best in well-prepared soil. Mulch with straw, grass clippings or manure to keep the moisture in. Pick regularly when the pods are young to encourage further cropping. Keep well watered in hot, dry conditions.
