Description

Orinoco French Bean Seeds

[60 days] Great as whole or fine-cut, Orinoco produces straight, golden-yellow pods that reach about 13cm (5”) in length. Their golden colour makes them easy to find and their dwarf habit makes them perfect for growing in containers of any kind. (No support needed.) Additionally, they do well in heavy soils and are resistant to the Bean Common Mosaic Virus, Anthracnose and Halo Blight.

Delicious lightly steamed and especially delightful in winter casseroles.

An RHS award-winning variety.
