Okay, let's start with some beans!
I'll give packs of 10 seeds (of each variety) to those who want them. PM me your address if interested. More varieties may well appear as I sort through
Added a description for each.
Climbing French Bean – Bridgewater
A vigorous variety, producing tall (1.8 to 2.4 m) plants and attractive pods heavily mottled with purple. Beans can be used fresh or dried.
Climbing French Bean – Coco Bicolour
An early, prolific French variety providing one of the prettiest beans in the collection, they are neatly zoned into a cream area and a purple mottled area. Vigorous and prolific with vines reaching up to 9ft tall. When young they have a delicious beany flavour and their intriguing appearance when dried make attractive soups, stews and casseroles.
Climbing French Bean – District Nurse
Pretty lilac flowers are followed by dramatically coloured pods, green splashed with navy blue.Delicious when young, but remain tender for a good length of time.
Climbing French Bean – San Antonio
Can't find much info on these but they are vigorous growers with lots of beans, they can be eaten as a green bean or shelled out and used for stews etc.
Climbing French Bean – Bird's Egg
Thought to have been known in England since 1825, this variety produces attractive flowers followed by beautiful pale green pods heavily speckled with red. Seed Guardian Nick Ruddy found the plants to be "tall, strong and high-yeilding". Sweet and tender when picked as young beans, but when dried the pretty white beans with red speckles are VERY succulent with a rich, full flavour; perfect for soups and stews.
Climbing French Bean – Tamila
Red splashed beans similar to a Borlotti bean. Very good indeed
Climbing French Bean – Veitch's Climbing
A red seeded kidney bean type. Good for chilli's!
