'Black Russian' Broad Bean

Sourced from the Irish Seed Savers. An ancient variety grown in Russia since time out of mind. They weren't bothered by the wet and windy summer of 2020 and ripened perfectly. Plants were a bit over a meter high so need supporting. The mature beans are a deep dark purple almost black. I grow them for the dry beans and have used in stews, ful madames and such.

Average 20 seeds per packet.
