Dwarf French beans – Borlotti (Organic)


Dwarf French bean with cream and pink dappled beans in pods that can be eaten fresh or dried.

This is a very versatile and strikingly beautiful bean. The immature pods can be eaten whole as green beans. When the pods change colour from green to cream and pink you can also shell and eat the beans inside. Or you leave them to mature fully and eat them then or dry and store.

Dwarf beans are good for growing in containers. They will generally grow about 45cm tall and crop slightly earlier than their climbing cousins.

Dwarf French Beans tips: Direct sow in 4cm deep drills, spacing seeds 12cm apart, and thin to final spacing. Wait until the soil has warmed up, from May until the beginning of July.
