In our opinion, quite simply the tastiest broad bean. It has celebrated its 200th birthday and is still widely grown by discerning gardeners. Not as high yielding as longpods, but worth the space in any garden. Green seeded.

Sow outdoors March to May Depth 2in/5cm deep in double rows Spacing 9in/15cm apart. Keep well watered and weed free Tip: Once beans form pinch out the top of the plant to deter blackfly. Harvest June to July. Suitable for freezing.
