Magic beanBy: customer review from 29/09/2015 on 23 March 2016I love this plant, it adds colour to the garden with its purple tones. awesome cropper, very sturdy climber. Gorgeous flowers. Great eaten straight from the vine. Or for some fun for the kids cook them and watch the magic happen when they go from being purple to green!

my favourite beanBy: customer review from 11/12/2012 on 21 March 2016This is my favorite french bean variety. Awesome colour, easy to grow, heavy yields and very good eating. I grow it every year and load up the freezer for winter, so I have them available all year:-)
