Much-loved by home growers this runner bean has lots of flavour, is truly vigorous, gives you lots of harvests and has impressive in length.
A truly handsome bean, Enorma has purple pods and reveals pretty, red flowers which turn into smooth, slender pods that grow up to 50cm (20in) in length.
Enorma by name and nature this award winning variety give you very big beans suitable for freezing. It's so good that runner bean Enorma has been a popular choice for exhibiting. Even if yours don't get to the showbench you'll be showing off the beans in your garden.
Enjoy harvesting lots of beans with great flavour as early as August. This variety is ready in the space of 12 to 16 weeks from sowing in spring. Pick them young if you like your runner beans tender or leave them to age a little longer on plants if you prefer your beans with a bit more bite.

Grown these for years always a good crop
Good germination and quality.
I usually have a success rate of 85-90% when growing seeds in top soil containers. However with these Enorma beans, which I have never had before, the success rate is 50%. Some of the beans were withered and probably should not have been used. I still have some left and will set them this week to see if 50% success can be beaten
