Vicia faba Heirloom.A low growing broad bean that doesn't require a climbing frame though some staking may be needed. 10 to 15cm long pods produce around 5 to 6 beans each. Nice flavour, good producer, freezes well. Broad beans prefer the cold and will sit quite happily in the garden through the winter to take off as soon as the weather heats up a little, they don't do well in the heat. Plant in late autumn or early spring. 100cm. Punnet of 6.
