This old French variety yields one of the prettiest beans in the collection; they are neatly zoned into a cream area and a purple mottled area. Early, vigorous and prolific with vines reaching up to 2.75m tall. One of our Guardians in northern England found that this was particularly suited to her conditions. When young they have a delicious nutty, beany flavour, and their intriguing appearance when dried makes attractive soups, stews and casseroles. Seed colour bicolour white/buff speckled purple.
