Ratings & Reviews
Magic beanI 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!
GoodGrew quickly and cropped well, with very pretty flowers.
my favourite beanThis 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:-)
