Sow in pots or trays on a windowsill or in a greenhouse using a good quality compost. Cover seeds with 25mm (1") compost. Germination 7-14 days. Grow on, planting outside or protecting with cloches until frost risk has passed, 20cm (8") between plants. Alternatively sow direct into prepared, warm, moist soil at a depth of 38mm (1½"), thinning as necessary to 20cm (8") between plants. Allow 60cm (24") between rows. Grows best in rich soil in a sunny position, pods well held above soil. Produces slim beans over a long period if picked daily and kept well watered during dry weather. Sowing to Cropping: 9-12 weeks.

Ideal for beds and borders. Prefers full sun but grows well in sun or shade. HEALTH BENEFITS: Source of vitamin A. CULINARY TIPS: Delicious when no thicker than a pencil, and can be sliced or cooked whole.
