Phaseolus Vulgaris 'Faraday'

 

Dwarf French Bean 'Faraday'

There are two main types of French bean, climbing and dwarf. Climbing, as the name suggests, require support. The dwarf variety grow up to 0.7m. They tend to get some damage where they touch the ground, however some new varieties have been bred that produce pods on long upright stalks and are held clear of the soil and foliage. Difficult to germinate outside before the end of Spring. Get an early crop by starting them off in greenhouse. 'Faraday' is a dwarf French bean variety that produces copious a large crop of high quality,uniform, slender, green pods about 6.5 - 7.5. The pods are uniform and slender, measuring about 6.5 to 7.5mm in diameter and 130 to 140mm long. The pods have both good texture and good flavour.
