French bean

New this year Limited Stock

Ray's Butter Bean

Originally from Phoenix Seeds, Australia, this variety had been grown in the UK for many years by John Yeoman of The Village Guild, who donated the seeds to us. The white and pale apricot flowers are borne on tall (2.5-3m) plants. Guardian Mrs Jane Durston loves them; she says, “Beautiful flavour, very mild and creamy, can't wait for next year's crop!” Tends to crop later (into September) but we have seen variances in this across the UK, so do let us know how they get on where you live. Seed colour bicolour dark purple/white speckled purple.
