Growing Calendar for French Bean Seeds - Purple Cascade
Delivery: 5-7 Working Days
French Bean Purple Cascade is a charismatic climbing variety with high-flavoured beans to match! The plants give you lots of pods which keep their colour after steaming or stir-frying which we think is a great way to prepare them in the kitchen.
Ready from July enjoy the fantastic flavour of these purple French beans. Purple in any vegetable signals high anti-oxidant levels which give good health benefits.
You receive 50 seeds in every packet which gives you the potential to reap hundreds of beans in just one season. That cuts costs from your supermarket bill as well as fills your vegetable patch with colour and impact.
We recommend you freeze excess harvests if you want a continual supply of purple beans after summer. Purple Cascade freezes well and is a great way for you to stock up on this super vegetable.
The purple pods retain there colour with light steaming

Grew these last year. Very pleased with germination, plants and crop so using them again.
We live these beans.easy to grow beautiful flavour.
I like my beans to come in different colours and these were the only purple climbing ones with a round pod that I could find. Fingers crossed they’ll be better than the flat podded ones I used last year (they went tough very quickly). Can’t say yet of course, but they look promising.
