More Beans, french varieties

Blue lake

Climbing variety of French bean with white seeds. High yielding medium size green beans. Stringless sweet and tender variety that can withstand short periods of dry weather. Leave to grow to maturity for white haricot beans.


Climbing variety with long straight dark green pods Black seeded variety with attractive purple flowers. Very prolific producer, tender and very tasty. This variety will even grow well in relatively poor soil.
