French Bean Carminat


This climbing variety produces really beautiful dark purple stringless beans which are so attractive as they grow in your veg patch, allotment or garden. You’ll find an abundance of beans from the top to the bottom of the plant and the beans grow remarkably straight in shape. Its flowers are a purple treat for the eye, so this heirloom certainly fits the ‘edimental’ category in our eyes. This one needs support so is great to grow over an arch which makes harvesting so much easier.

Sowing info

Can be sown in position May to early June, if you have no problem with mice or pigeons. Sow close together as little as 7cm apart at a depth of 5cm. Alternatively, sow indoors in module trays from April to May. Beans are fast growing, so don’t be tempted to sow too early. Harden off and plant out after all risk of frost has passed, providing support.

Growing info

Plants should be efficient climbers, so will require little training. Pick when pods are young and tender to enjoy fresh or leave pods on plant to semi dry to harvest drying beans for storage.
