Bean 'Tiger's Eye' (Organic)
Popular with Chefs because the beautifully coloured thin skin virtually disappears on cooking, leaving a creamy smooth pulp suitable for dips, spreads and soups, this bean is popular with gardeners too as the stunning pods are produced on compact plants and can be eaten fresh from the bush when young, or dried to save for use throughout the winter. Harvest in 80-90 days.
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.
