More Beans, french varieties


Climbing french bean that produces extremely long purple pods. The well flavoured pods can reach nearly 30cm in length. High yielding as well as good looking. Note the catch - the pods turn green on cooking!


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.

Kenyan Safari

Dwarf or bush variety that produces fine stringless beans Fast maturing and very tasty. A good choice of variety to grow in containers, the plant holds the pods well clear of the soil.
