In Dutch 'Driemaal Wit' means 'three times white'..maybe because its seeds are (nearly) white, its flowers are pure white (so not the usual twin colored black/white) and the beans stay (nearly) white during cooking. Very mild flavored, it lacks the typical bitterness of other broad beans.
In Netherlands these are very popular to grow.
