Days to maturity:
The big flat seeds can be sown in early spring as soon as the soil is ready ab. 5 cm deep. They are not, like other beans, as affected by cold soil. These beans germinate when the temperature is 4-5°C in the soil.
Keep 10-15 cm of mutual space between the plants and 40-60 cm between the rows, 15 cm for double rows!
The pods are picked and shelled continually during all of the late summer and autumn. The grey-green seeds are used in soups, purée, casseroles or sautéed with herbs in oil. They can also be frozen after parboiling and ripe ones be dried for winter storage. Lots of people like to peel the beans after a quick boil like almonds to take away the bitter peel. Quite young pods where the seeds have only just begun to develop are delicious, slightly poached or fried.
60-90 seeds/100g. A portion contains about 20 seeds and sows 2-4 m. 800-1500 g are needed to sow 100 m.
