A classic heavy-yielding French bean perfect for both early-season and main cropping.
Sorry – We have had to temporarily suspend accept new orders.
[80 days] A variety that combines the strong harvest of Runner beans with the tenderness and reliability of traditional French Beans, Hunter French beans have become a staple in many British gardens. The beans themselves are bright green, white-seeded, almost stringless, and grow to about 12 inches (25 cm) long. The plants grow well both under protection and outdoors, and can be happily interplanted with peas and runner beans.
Like all French beans, these freeze well. They’re also great for drying and using as haricot beans. And of course, they taste great both raw and cooked.
These are a climbing bean, so make sure to provide them a trellis, canes, or other support.
