Original stringless bean from 1810, thought to have come from Germany, named because of ease of preparation, delicious flavour, heavy bearer over a long period, not much string even when old, round pods to 20cm. 80 days.
A most popular vegetable. Takes little room, high yielding and nutritious. It bears later but longer than bush beans and ensures a continuous supply. Grows well in all soils if not waterlogged. Does best in near neutral conditions. Sow after frost.
