An excellent summer broad bean with very heavy yields of long, well-filled pods with a good 8-9 tender white beans in each one. This Victorian variety has stayed a firm favourite with Veg growers for its reliability and good performance, and is renowned for its excellent flavour: pick the beans young to get them at their best. Surplus broad beans freeze beautifully; blanch in boiling water for a minute or two and pack into bags or trays in the freezer.

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.
