Broad Bean - El Beano - Nevile Sinclair has been added to your order
Details Purple flowers, Purple fruit ripen red. Thumb-sized, they are big on flavour.Sow indoors in early Spring. I now germinate my frost-sensitive species on a purpose-built compost heap, in our glass house. (Capsicums require soil to be 15C. to germinate.) I grow the resulting plants outdoors once the frost danger has diminished. Czech Beauty is a reliable performer, in our Scargill climate, where growing-season temperatures can fluctuate widely.

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.
