Late, but very good in Central England. I agree with all Gerddi said. Would like to add that Berner Landfrauen freezes well. Just early enough to save seeds reliably.

Rampant and very leafy. Late bean but lots of them when they arrive in mid to late August. Can be eaten green then or left until the c. end of Otober to dry.

Speckled pods and beans.

A well-flavoured bean.
