  • Runner Bean Cosse Violette

    R26.00

    Phaseolus vulgaris

    An outstanding variety with a very high production. As purple beans go, this one is right up there in terms of production. I believe it to be the best tasting of all the purple runner beans. A very long season plant that will produce almost all summer long.

  • Runner Bean Mayflower

    R26.00

    Phaseolus vulgaris

    The Mayflower Bean is the bean that went over to the USA on the Mayflower in 1620, so this is a real historical heirloom. This is one of my favourite pole beans as it’s tasty, productive and is a good dual purpose bean. I’m amazed at how productive this little bean is and it well deserves a spot in any garden. The pods are a bit smaller than average, what it lacks in size it makes up for in flavour and quantity.
