Bean Dwarf Freds (aka: Tiger)


Phaseolus SPECIES: vulgaris


Heritage Status: New Zealand
Bio-Region of Origin: Mt Albert: Auckland
Number of Seeds: 25

Description: Sent to us by Chris Piper who saved the seed that his father grew in christchurch since the 1960s. Far more hardy than modern dwarf beans so can be planted earlier and later. Stunning dwarf, green snap bean, flat green with a curly tail and lots of purple streaks on the pods. They are very tasty, but must be eaten when young to avoid the strings and toughness.

Planting Instructions: Scatter sow into seed trays. Transplant when ground has warmed in Spring as soon as second leaves appear to 20 cm diagonal spacing. This will avoid all problems with birds, slugs, and snails.
