French Beans

French beans are the essence of summer, producing tender juicy beans ideal for summer salads and light cooking. They have a more delicate texture and flavour compared to runner beans.

The French bean is actually a native of South America however it is the most popular bean grown and eaten in France! It thrives in warm conditions and cannot tolerate any frost.

There are several varieties – climbing tall varieties that can grow as tall as runner beans and bush varieties which are ideal for containers and small gardens and have the added bonus of not needing any additional supports.

French beans come in a variety of colours – green, yellow, cream, flecked and purple. Not only do coloured varieties add novelty but they also make harvesting much easier as the beans are easier to see.

French beans are easy to grow as long as they are not sown too early. The compact dwarf varieties are especially suitable for beginners and children.
