French bean


When this variety was grown at Ryton we found that it produced very healthy plants, growing to 2-2.5m tall.

The flowers are pale pink to lilac followed by long, green, flat pods which are stringless and tasty when picked young.

Its performance was not impaired by the hot, dry summer of 2018. Guardian Alison Charlesworth found that the dried beans store well and have a lovely flavour.
