Bean 'Australian Butter' (Organic)
A climbing butter bean that ticks all the boxes. The long round beans are golden yellow and have the taste, texture and appearance of having already being daubed with butter. Flowers are mauve and the seeds are deep purple making a sensational contrast to the pods. Prolific and producing for months this one is a real winner.
These fast growing annuals should be direct sown or planted out after all risk of frost has passed. Pick daily for highest yields. Well drained, pH neutral to alkaline soil is ideal, as is the addition of potassium and blood and bone. Mulch around your beans thoroughly- beans are shallow rooted and are easily damaged with close cultivation. Beans can be used fresh, they also freeze well or can be left on the plant to develop large, dried seeds which can be used in soups and stews.
