This broadbean is a true beauty, as well as a flavoursome, blackfly-resistant producer. It has striking scarlet flowers, very unusual in a broad bean and absolutely gorgeous!
Baby broad beans are yummy stir fried with a bit of bacon and lemon juice, and the old beans make great bright green hummus and falafel.
Sow 20cm apart, any time from early autumn to winter’s end - do successions if you love them! They grow to over 1m tall, so put sturdy stakes at each end of your rows and run strings either side to support the plants as they grow. Regular picking encourages more pods to form.
