Growing Calendar for Broad Bean Seeds - Red Epicure
Delivery: 3-5 Working Days
Broad Bean ‘Red Epicure’ is a very special variety of Broad Bean. Unlike Most other varieties beans contained in this verdant green pod are chestnut-crimson, even retaining their vibrant colour when lightly steamed. The flavour is excellent too.
Most plants arrived in good condition, apart from the Heliotrope, which arrived a week late and in a poor state. Fortunately it's revived a bit, but the plants have definitely suffered.
