A remarkably good-flavoured Broad Bean. The extra long, 30cm (12in) pods with up to 8 green seeds are also excellent for freezing. An easy and trouble-free variety, which will grow well under most garden conditions.
Sow seed 5cm (2in) deep into well-prepared soil. Sow double rows, allowing 23-30cm (9-12in) between plants, and 60cm (24in) between each row.
As plants grow, support with stout canes and string as necessary. Pinch out the tips of the plants when in full flower to help the pods swell and to help reduce infestation of blackfly. Pick frequently when pods are well-filled but still tender.
