Broad Bean 'Imperial Green Windsor' is shorter and broader podded than the Longpods, and slightly later to mature, but remains amongst the best of the heritage varieties for flavour. This flavoursome broad bean averages 4 large, dark green beans per pod which are superb for making soup or as a cooked vegetable. Any surplus beans will freeze well without discolouring. Height: 100cm (39?). Spread: 45cm (18?).

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