Product Description

Suttons Seeds dwarf French bean borlotto firetongue seed gives an Italian specialty bean that's ideal for fresh use or as dried seeds (haricots) in a wide range of dishes. The seeds and pods are attractively mottled, and will last throughout winter if stored in airtight jars. Plants producing plenty of distinctively flavoured, stringless pods over a long period if picked regularly. Health benefits: source of vitamin A. Culinary tips: delicious when no thicker than a pencil and can be sliced or cooked whole. Culture: sow March-April under glass, or in succession outdoors from late April until mid-July. 12 Weeks maturity.

Sowing and growing - For early crops, sow in pots or trays on a windowsill or in a greenhouse using a good quality compost. Cover seeds with 38 mm compost. Germination 7 to 14 days. Grow on, planting outside or protecting with cloches until frost risk has passed, 20 cm between plants. Alternatively sow direct from late April into prepared. warm, moist soil at a depth of 50 mm, thinning as necessary to 20 cm between plants. Allow 60 cm between rows. Grows best in rich, well prepared soil in a sunny position. Water well during dry weather. For winter use, pull plants and allow seed to dry in a cool airy place.

Quality control - This seed has been carefully tested to ensure high germination. Prior to use, store in a dry cool place.

I bought these just before christmas, and they grew great in the allotment this year. They are fairly hardy plants, and the beans are delicious. Don't be fooled by the pretty red colour though... it disappears after you cook them.
Lovely tasting beans.
