Dwarf French Beans – Brittany Haricot (Organic) ***NEW FOR 2024***

£2.95

Plump round bean with purple marbled pods best enjoyed half-dry . If this bean was grown in the Cotes d’Amor region of Brittany, it would be called Coco di Paimpol. With a creamy nutty flavour this Haricot bean is traditionally sold at French markets demi-sec in pods and enjoyed in hot and cold dishes.

We received a packet of seeds in the post from one of our customers with a note saying that they had been saving their own seed from this variety for over 6 years since they lived in Brittany.

Best harvested when the beans in the pods are fully formed and semi-ripe. It freezes really well, avoiding the need for
soaking overnight if dried. Great as a warm salad or in casseroles.
(Approximate seed count – 60)
