Brown Envelope Seeds

Brown Dutch

The great discovery of 2017, this bean was sent to me by Donal de Barra from Miltown Malbay, where he has been growing it for 25 years, and where it forms a significant part of his diet. He also feeds it to his hens and pigs.Although it is a dwarf bean it grew into much taller and more vigorous plants than my other dwarf beans, I thought it was going to start climbing and so I put up some sticks and strings for it. but it didn’t really need them. It produced a mass of golden brown dried beans, over 500g/square meter. This amounts to a crop of 5 Tonnes per ha. The size of the plants was great for supressing weeds. They were the last bean to mature, harvestedAverage 30 seeds/ packet
