Aquadulce Claudia Broad Bean Seeds
[80 days] Truly one of Britain’s finest over-wintering broad beans, autumn-sown Aquadulce Claudia will produce a crop a whole month earlier than spring-sown varieties. It establishes itself quickly in the fall and produces numerous, well-filled pods of tender white beans in the spring. In fact, this bean actually needs cool weather to perform at its best. Even so, if you don’t get around to planting in the autumn or winter, this versatile bean can also be spring-sown for a decent crop in the summer.
Great for freezing, fresh shelled beans or dried beans.
Height: 100cm (39"). Spread: 45cm (18").
Why are my Aquadulce Claudia flowers falling off? Sometimes when the soil isn't moist enough or the temperature isn't cool enough the flowers can begin to die or drop off your plants. Broad Beans thrive in cooler conditions and love moist soil to really thrive.
How do you protect Aquadulce Claudia from pests? Broad Bean plants attract a lot of pests and preventing them before they start to attack is better then trying to control an infestation. You can prevent blackflys and other bugs from eating your broad beans by brushing the clusters off of your plants leaves.
How tall do Aquadulce Claudia Broad Beans grow? Your Aquadulce Claudia plant will grow to about 100cm tall, offering pods that are around 23cm long.
