In colder parts of the South Island and Inland North Island you dont want to sow broad beans between March and and early May if plants are over 10cm tall, heavy frosts will damage or kill. Plants under this size handle frosts well.Botanical name  Vicia fabaPrice per packet  $3.00Packet contents  approx 30

Bean (dwarf runner )- White Czar - Medbury Gardens

Details  White flowered, white seeded bush form of the Scarlet Runner bean,grows to about 40cm tall. Like all bean they are frost tender. During wet periods beans that touch the ground can rot, so one way to help can be to use hoops poked into the soil over the plants that way to hold up plastic covers that shed the rain off keeping the surface soil drier.Botanical name  Phaseolus coccineusPrice per packet  $3.00Packet contents  30 seeds

Broad Bean - El Beano - Nevile Sinclair

Details  pure white  flowers. The pods enclose beans that are SWEET, and which remain GREEN once cooked. Try raw. These broad beans are my own selection, from possibly a random mutation, over 35 years ago. That original, pure white- flowered specimen caught my eye. I much preferred the flavour and colour of its beans, over others. I think you will, too. Kids love them raw,and as such they are wonderful in salads. In colder parts of the South Island and Inland North Island you dont want to sow broad beans between March and and early May if plants are over 10cm tall, heavy frosts will damage or kill. Plants under this size handle frosts well. CURRENTLY BEEN GROWN AND SHOULD BE AVAILABLE FEB 2018Botanical name  Vicia FabaPrice per packet  $3.00Packet contents  30

Bean - Cherokee Trail of Tears - Medbury Gardens

Details  

Between 1838 and 1839 the Cherokee people of the United States were forced to march across the Smoky Mountains to Oklahoma. This winter death march is known as the Trail of Tears as over 4,000 people died making the trip.

In 1977 a member of Seed Savers Exchange named Dr. John Wyche from Hugo, Oklahoma donated these seeds to our collection. It is thought that his Cherokee ancestors carried this heirloom bean with them on the Trail of Tears.

Beans were domesticated in the Americas thousands of years ago and serve as a protein in the diet of humans and animals.
Growing this bean takes about 55 days to produce a purple podded green bean and 90 days to dry beans.  This is a vigorous climber that we enjoy very much as a fresh green bean and have found to be highly productive.
