Description – A very good flavoured broad bean, with good pod length and remarkable table qualities. It may well be the best green-seeded variety, excellent for deep freezing and growing well under all conditions. Height: 75-90cm (30-36in).
Sowing – Sow February to April in an open sunny site preferably on ground which has been manured for a previous crop. Sow in double rows 5cm (2in) deep, 23cm (9in) apart in the row. The double rows should be spaced 23cm (9in) apart and a distance of 46-60cm (18-24in) should be left before the next set of double rows.
Growing – Hoe regularly and cut off the tops of the plants as soon as four clusters of bloom are showing.
Aftercare – Harvest the beans when the pods are well filled and the seeds still soft.
Harvest – June to August
