Product Description

This Gourmet Delight variety produces heavy, well-flavoured crops with long, fleshy 15cm pods which are harvested over a long period. This plant tolerates both hot and cold conditions. It’s a dwarf variety that is virtually stingless and doesn't need staking, so you can grow it in pots where space is limited. It’s ideal bean for freezing and half-hardy annual. Most popular vegetable, originally from South and Central America, cultivated 500 B.C., introduced to France by 1535. High yielding and rich in vitamins A, B & C. Use successive plantings whilst frost free. Grows well in all soils if not waterlogged. Does best in near neutral conditions.
