Chiltern Seeds say: "Originating before 1855 and recommended in NicholsonĀ“s Encyclopaedia of 1888, this is still a variety to grow in your kitchen garden for cook to receive a regular quota of runner beans to prepare for you to keep you healthy. With an abundance of beautiful, bicolored red and white flowers, this is a plant that will not be out of place anywhere in your garden, and the family will enjoy the outstanding flavour of the very tender, medium length pods."
