Climbing Bean Habit

Another heirloom Bean, the Pea Bean has a striking brown and white colour pattern like the Orca Bean. This is a bean that has a long 400 year history in the UK, and although it was almost lost to cultivation for a long period, surviving only in out of the way places and gardens it is now becoming available again. It is a climbing French Bean that can be harvested as green beans when very young and tender like French beans, or they can be left on the plant until the pods and beans are dry. These can then be shelled to reveal the quite fascinating beans that can be kept dried.
