History: These are a beautiful dwarf french bean. They produce compact, high yielding  plants that grew really well for us in 2023. As the name suggests, they are black and white patterned. They can be picked and eaten as green beans but that seems such a shame given the how striking the ripe beans become.

When to sow: April - May indoor, May – June direct

Requirements: nutrient-rich soil, regular watering, and a lot of sun.

When to harvest seed: July - Oct. When beans are fully mature and pods turn brown. In southern England, typically July/later summer.

Need to isolate: No 

Seed Grown: Omved Gardens 

Seed harvested: 2023
