These beans, bred in France in the 1840s, form small bush-style plants.

Best picked young when they still have a flush of green on them, they have a fresh buttery flavour. As the beans are yellow and plants are short, they are easy to spot and easy to pick, ideal in containers or in front of taller crops.
