Dwarf Broad Bean Oscar


Small but mighty, this heirloom broad bean is a sturdy plant that offers up great sized pods around 15cm in length and plenty of them. A favourite for people with smaller or container gardens, you’ll find it very rewarding to grow. Immature pods can actually be picked early and eaten like sugar snap peas, or left to mature and eaten as the broad beans we know and love. If you’re feeling really decadent, steam and then double shell your beans and pop them in a spring risotto to let them truly sing.

Average 40 seeds.

Sowing info

Direct sow broad bean seed in place from February to April if you have no problem with mice and pigeons for a spring crop. Alternatively, sow in module trays and plant out when 10cm tall. Sow broad beans at a depth of 5cm, giving each plant at least 20cm space apart. Germination usually takes around 10 days.
