Robin Hood


Robin Hood is a unique dwarf broad bean, as it is green-seeded instead of the traditional, white-seeded dwarf variety ‘The Sutton’. Ideal for small gardens or for growing in pots, because of its very uniform, dwarf and compact habit. Plant height is 12-18″ with 4-6 beans per pod. Excellent source of protein. Suitable for summer and autumn production from sequential sowings, beginning as soon as the land is workable. Pick as the pods begin to swell but before seeds toughen for tasty, soft beans. A favorite vegetable for many with all the benefits of an easy growing legume.
