A self-fertile, white-flowered variety producing masses of beans that are great for cooking whole rather than cut up, and are sold at a premium in certain high-end supermarkets. Can also be left to grow to around 30cm.
- Shorter beans for easy cooking
- Runner/French bean cross

Grow on, planting outside protecting with cloches until frost risk has passed. Alternatively, sow direct into warm, moist soil prepared by digging and raking. Erect canes or netting to support plants, sowing one seed per cane or at 15-23cm (6-9") intervals along the row, at a depth of 5cm (2"). Grows best in rich, well-prepared soil. Conserve moisture by mulching with manure, straw or grass clippings. Water well during dry summers. Sowing - Cropping – 12-14 weeks.
