9 out of 10 seeds germinated and have developed into vibrant bean plants in the course of a few weeks. A fantastic variety of bean that is low maintenance and easy to grow.

WOW what a great thing to grow, my first time growing Broad Beans, they taste fantastic, I just boil them and eat them straight out the skin.. I grew seedlings first and then put in the garden, make sure you have a trellis for them to grow up, and tie them as they grow so they don't snap in the wind. LOVE them.. thank you
