Climbing (French) Bean Sunshine Vegetable Seeds
A most attractive variety from the same breeder as the ever-popular Climbing Bean Cobra! Beans are stringless with good disease resistance ensuring reliable, high quality crops. The long and slender, pods have a sweet, mild flavour and are a golden shade of yellow. With pods reaching up to 10cm(7in) long, they stand out nicely against the bright green foliage. You can expect high yields of tasty beans from July right through to October, with regular picking.
