Growing Calendar for Broad Bean Seeds - Sciabola Verde
Delivery: 5-7 working days
Sciabola Verda is vigorous spring-sown, longpod variety of broad bean that produces pods up to a whopping 40cm (16in) in length with up to 10 beans per pod.
Hard to say perhaps, but easy to grow exclusive Sciabola Verda broad beans are a real treat for early summer and are worth picking as soon as ready, when young and tender.
So impressive in taste and easy to grow that the Royal Horticultural Society has given Sciabola Verda the Award of Garden Merit.
The unique flavour of Sciabola Verda is perfect hot from boiling or steaming but we recommend that you just serve them warm as part of a fresh and healthy bean salad. In every packet you receive 60 seeds to give you a potential crop of hundreds of pods to enjoy through the summer.
Got more to spare than your need yourself? This variety retains its flavour well when frozen. Why not, pass on to neighbours or the local vegetable-growing community and share your appreciation for growing.
