An unusual delight. The Pea Bean has small round seeds like peas. It has a unique flavour when cooked whole or shelled like peas making it a real all rounder. The plant climbs like a runner bean, producing pods that are similar to a large mangetout pea which can be picked young and cooked whole; but as the pods mature they can be shelled like peas and the seeds cooked lightly, or it can be left to dry and the pretty white and brown bi-coloured seeds can be used as normal dried beans. Sow in late May or June and treat just as you would runner beans

Where to Sow
Early sowings can be made underglass at a temperature of 16°C, sow 3 seeds per 8cm (3in) pot filled with seed sowing compost. Outside sowings can be made from May onwards into the growing site 5cm (2in) deep. Sow 2-3 seeds every 20cm(8in) apart with rows spaced 60cm (24in) apart.
What to do next
Seedlings sown underglass should be gradually hardened off before planting outside in late May to the above spacing, once all risk of frost has past. Provide support by canes or netting for plants to climb. Water regularly during dry weather.
July to September
Sow a few seeds early in large containers under glass for an early crop or sow late summer under glass to extend the cropping season into the autumn.
