Bean (Climbing French) Seeds - Golden Gate

Large, flattened, sunny yellow pods are set off nicely by the vigorous, dark green plants, making it easy to see the handfuls of beans. The pods are tasty and stringless even when they mature at almost 25cm (10") long and 2.5cm (1") wide. Enjoy them sautéed in butter for a melt-in-your-mouth side dish. White seeds.

  • Pods hold well on plant and are completely stringless even at maturity
  • Produces huge yields

Tom says: Not the most modern of varieties but the bright yellow pods make the beans far easier to pick as they stand out from the green leaves. The pods are completely stringless and retain the crisp texture even after cooking.

Sow in pots or trays on a windowsill or in a greenhouse using a good quality compost. Cover seeds with 38mm (1½") compost. Germination 7-14 days. Grow on, planting outside or protecting with cloches until frost risk has passed. Alternatively, sow direct into prepared, warm, moist soil, first erecting canes or netting to eventually support plants, sowing one seed per cane or at 15-23cm (6-9") intervals along the row at a depth of 50mm (2"). Grows best in rich, well prepared soil. Mulch with manure, straw or a layer of grass clippings. Climbing French Beans can be more reliable croppers than runner beans. Water well during dry weather. Sowing to Cropping:10-12 weeks.

Ideal for beds and borders. Prefers full sun but grows well in sun or shade. HEALTH BENEFITS: A source of vitamins A, C and E, plus protein and fibre. CULINARY TIPS: Never eat raw, boil rapidly to retain flavour and texture.
