  • Broad Bean Cretian pod on plant

Our donor obtained the seeds when holidaying in Crete. Growing to around 60-75cm in height his plants produced around 1kg of beans from a 1.25m x 1.25m plot, he says, and blackfly appeared not to be interested in the plants. Don't expect huge pods: four beans in each is normal, but they are produced in abundance. The tasty beans are perfect eaten raw, as they do in Greece.

George Potts

  • Broad Bean George Potts

Donated by one of our volunteer guides at Ryton, who originally obtained the seed from one of his old friends, George Potts. The seed was handed down to Mr Potts by his father who had grown them since the early 20th century in Manchester. They seem to be resistant to pests and disease and produce a heavy crop of delicious beans.
