Vegetable Seeds from Sow Seeds Ltd
An unusual dwarf bean with long round, glossy dark purple pods that make a beautiful display in the garden with purple flowers and pods. Although unusual it does not lack in flavour - in fact in is delicious.
It turns dark green on cooking and is a stringless variety. It is better to sow a few seeds at a time to stagger cropping as it produces heavy yields - good variety for freezing though.
Keep picking young to encourage further cropping and get the best tasting beans.
Great for containers. An excellent variety - give it a go!
