There is a very high demand for seed at the moment so we are doing our best to keep up with orders and packeting up more seeds. As such we are only accepting a certain amount of orders per day.
Our online shop will be open from 9am each day and we will close it once we have reached our capacity, we have also had to put limits on the amount of any one variety per order (3) and of total order amount (£50), to try to be as fair as possible to all our customers.
Thanks for your patience - we hope you and your loved ones are fit and healthy during this challenging time.
P.S. we apologise in advance if you happen to be in the middle of placing an order when we shut down the shop, and understand how frustrating this would be, but it will inevitably happen to some
Climbing French bean – Borlotti (Organic)
This bean variety produces gorgeous plump beans with beautiful pink speckles on the pod as well as on the bean. They are widely used in Italian cooking and have a sweet flavour with a creamy texture when cooked. They are fabulous eaten either young in the pod – raw or cooked, or shelled and eaten fresh. Otherwise allow them to harden off and used like a dry bean for later.
Borlotti beans can be grown indoors or outdoors. They are not as prolific as runner beans but certainly have a place in the garden not just as an eye-catcher but as the tasty, good quality bean that it is.
We love them for their excellent taste, colour and versatility. They will make great homemade baked beans with a tomato sauce or a delicious addition in a stew.
