Our donor was given this bean in 1950 by a gardener from Quenington House, Gloucestershire who said he should look after them as you could not purchase them. They were identified in 1994 by Ron Bateman of Radio Oxford as ‘Blue Queen’. This hardy variety produces purple, stringless pods, 15-20cm in length which turn green when cooked. Sweet and tender when eaten young, they also retain their flavour when frozen.
