Suitable for Containers



Considered as a delicacy in Europe, some of the tastiest shell beans you could eat. The beautiful, small beans should be shelled from the pods when they are still moist and tender.
Treat them like a garden pea or a baby broad bean. Mature beans can also be shelled, dried and stored. Once tried we are convinced they become addictive.

Planting & Harvesting

Sow & Grow

Sow indoors for surest results April-May, 2.5cm (1") deep into individual pots of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out 25cm (10") apart, during May-June when frosts are over. Allow 45cm (18") between rows. Or sow outdoors May-June for ease, where they are to crop, 5cm (2") deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-cultivated, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Delay sowing if soil is cold or waterlogged. Sow two seeds together, 30cm (1') between each position. Allow 45cm (18") between rows. Thin to leave stronger plant. Water well until plants are established. Harvest: June-October.

Hint's & Tips

Beans may be used as dried flageolet beans, requiring soaking overnight and longer cooking. Harvest whole mature plant and hang upside down to dry before shelling. Ideal for deep freezing.
