Good morning, I have just received my first delivery from you (various vegetable plants) and wanted to say how pleased I am with the quality of the plants you sent me! The plants arrived on the day you said they would, carefully packed and in very good condition. They were larger than I was expecting which made planting them really easy. Thank you too for the helpful information about planting enclosed with each plant as well. I shall be recommending you to all my friends and family! Your website is very good too!

Supplied as a packet of approximately 75 seeds.This Product is Available Now.
A black seeded variety that we introduced to our range in 2007 after being so impressed with the continuity of cropping performance; often when beans are left and not picked they become thick seeded and inedible - our cropping for our own use got on top of us and this arose, though unlike other varieties of Climbing French Beans they did not then fail but continued to crop from late May into September.
An excellent flavoursome variety whether eaten raw or cooked. Whilst it freezes well it is also suitable for late season drying and using as haricot beans.
The plants themselves have a strong constitution and do not seem to suffer from any pest problems either. Highly recommended.
