One of the hardiest climbing French beans producing flat purple pods under a wide range of conditions. Pods turn green when cooked. Sow the seed 3 cm deep, spacing plants 10 cm apart. Best sown Oct – Dec (cold), Sept – Jan (Temp) and all year round in the tropics. Provide a trellis to 2 metres and ensure adequate water, particularly at flowering. Germination should occur 7 – 10 days at 21 deg. C. soil temperature. Expect 3 to 5 times the crop of dwarf varieties over a longer picking period.
