Cretian

  • Broad Bean Cretian flower
  • Broad Bean Cretian Harvested Pods
  • 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.
