Phaseolus coccineus

A runner bean variety with a smattering of French bean genes, Snowstorm  ups the stakes in modern breeding.

The pure white flowers of Snowstorm produce flat pods typical of a runner bean, though their smooth, refined surface is closer to that of a French bean. Yields are very good and the quality and flavour of the beans are excellent – just harvest the pods when they are 20 to 25cm long. If you are not a fan of runner beans, Snowstorm might just change your mind. As an added bonus, the Royal Horticultural Society’s vegetable trials committee commented that it is especially good for the show bench.
