Little Diggers Bean Australian Butter
As beautiful as it is productive, mauve flowers and deep-purple seeds provides a sensational contrast to the yellow pods. Prolific, this climbing bean produces consistently for several months. Harvest daily to extend your crop.
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.
