Gloster Bounty

  • Broad bean Gloster Bounty

No letters about the spelling, please (see also Carrot ‘Altringham’!). A sturdy, compact bean (60-75cm) ideal for exposed areas where it will not require staking. Matures early, therefore avoids the worst of the blackfly, and produces large, well-filled pods in abundance. Guardian Anne St John notes that “it is always reliable, whether planted at the end of the winter or as late as May.”
