A dwarf broad bean that is ideal for small gardens and useful in exposed sites.
A decades-old broad bean that still is a valuable garden vegetable. For one, it has a dwarf growth habit that is ideal for small gardens and useful in exposed sites – short plants are less likely to fall over in the wind. Then, two, sowing dates are flexible, ranging from February to as late as July.
In addition, the pods are shorter than those of other varieties, and they are delicious when harvested young (about 10 to 12cm long) and eaten ‘mangetout’ like a French bean.
