The beans are tasty and sweet which retain their colour and flavour well after cooking.
Broad beans are traditionally sow in double rows 7cm (2in.) deep, 23cm (9in.) apart in the row. The double rows should be spaced 23cm (9in.) apart and a distance of 40 to 60cm (18 to 24in.) should be left before the next set of double rows. Plant seed 5cm deep. They should be planted or thinned to 20cm apart in staggered rows 30cm apart. Sow extra seeds at the end of the row for transplants.
The plants reach 120cm (48in) in height. Producing a heavy crop in 12 to 16 weeks. As the beans get taller, you will need to provide extra support to your plants
