  • Climbing French Bean Bird's Egg
  • Climbing French bean Bird's Egg (seeds)

Thought to have been known in England since 1825, this variety produces sturdy plants with thick stems and attractive flowers followed by beautiful pale green pods heavily speckled with red. Seed Guardian Miss Gotts describes them as a “very robust bean!” Sweet and tender when picked as young beans, but when dried the pretty white beans with red speckles have a rich, full flavour; perfect for soups and stews.
