A palpable triumph in South Wales - Mike Newth - 09/09/2013
We've tried these for the first time during this first reasonable summer(2013) in a while. Very vigorous plants - probably would have gone to 12 feet had my poles been longer . Heavily flowered and podded. The beans themselves are tasty and very large - harvesting has (early Sept) only begun but we'll surely be trying these again next year. Never having eaten a fresh butter bean before (though always a fan of dried and tinned ones ) I was delighted.
The most delicious, creamy beans - Anne - 02/23/2014
I utterly adore these. The fresh beans are nothing like dried or tinned butter beans - the flavour and texture is divine. I think of them as an autumn treat (you can pick them into November) - wonderful in hearty winter casseroles with sausages, tomatoes, root veg, etc. They grow well in my garden (London, but with a cold microclimate) and the flowers look pretty on wigwams.
