Beautiful borlotti bean pods

This year I grew borlotti beans.

I had four plants and you might remember I posted about them when they were very small.

Well they grew. And they had lovely pale pink flowers. And beans.

And eventually the beans had lovely stripey pods.

Then I harvested them.

There were 11 bean pods in total.

Which yielded 40 beans.

They do look beautiful don’t they.

  1. I think they will, they were lovely tasting too but a lot of fuss for such a small number. Wonder how to up the yield…..
