Seeds & Stuff

Broad Bean 'Black Russian'

Sourced from the Irish Seed Savers. An ancient variety grown in Russia since time out of mind. They are very hardy and I have saved seed from them in very wet and windy summers whereas other varieties I tried succumbed to chocolate spot. Plants are 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.
