Description

Heavy-producing white-flowered climbing bean, with tasty, tender, flat, stringless beans all summer. This is quick to crop, so ideal for early crops, inside or out — and with good disease resistance, it's ideal for organic growing.

Care Tips

Will grow best in a sunny position with fertile, well-dug soil that has had plenty of organic matter added. Provide support with tall canes or bean poles. Water well during dry weather and apply a mulch to help keep moisture in the soil.
