Broad Bean Autumn Light


Known to be the world’s first autumn cropping bean, this is a wonderful Italian heirloom. Pods contain a generous number of beans (5 to 7) and are renowned for their flavour. Seeds can also be sown in autumn for an early summer crop, meaning you can have two or even three sowings in the year!

Average 40 seeds.
