Mr Brooks' Blue Bean
Grown by Mr Brooks in the early 1960s but passed to us by his neighbour who has grown the beans since 1969. Produces 50-60cm plants and very attractive mauve and lilac flowers followed by slim, flat, purple pods. Best picked when young as pods become a little stringy as they mature. Sow to harvest 70 days (approx.) Seed colour pale cream to buff.
