Climbing French Beans – Pea Bean (Organic) ***NEW FOR 2024***


Stringless flatish pods followed by plentiful fresh beans that turn maroon and cream once dried. This pretty heritage variety of bean has been passed through the weathered hands of generations of gardeners since the 16th century. It’s the ultimate all-rounder providing plentiful flat smooth skinned green pods. As the pods fill out with beans and dry they develop a delightful maroon and cream pattern, great for long storage and comforting winter stews. An easy to grow climbing bean with great drought tolerance and plentiful abundance.

When to sow: May-June

Spacing: 65x40cm

Climbing French Beans tips: Direct sow from May until the beginning of June, when the soil has warmed up. If sown when the soil is too cold and/or wet the beans may rot. We recommend building the climbing structure first (poles distanced 65cm between rows and 40cm within the row) and then planting four beans at the base of each pole 4cm deep. This way you will know exactly where the beans have been planted and also you will not damage the roots when building the structure.
