Description

Sprite French Bean Seeds

Sprite French beans are an elegant variety of dwarf broad bean bred in continental Europe. This variety produces smooth, slender, dark green pods, around 15cm long. Being a dwarf variety, the plants themselves are compact and bushy, and unlike runner beans, need no additional support. Sprite French beans are completely stringless and very tender, with a many find the flavor to be particularly fine. The yields of long, straight pods are abundant, and if you’re looking for a great container bean that freezes, you need look no further.

Super easy to grow, Sprites, once started and planted in their final growing spot, need next to no care. Like all members of the legume family, Sprite French beans leave the soil with added nitrogen. They can also withstand dry conditions better than many other bean crops.

Germination 7-14 days
