Undoubtedly Britain’s top choice for over-wintering broad beans, the autumn-sown Aquadulce Claudia outpaces its spring-sown counterparts by delivering a harvest a full month earlier. Thriving after a swift establishment in the fall, it yields numerous well-filled pods of tender white beans come spring. Interestingly, this bean thrives in cooler temperatures, showcasing its best performance in such conditions. Nevertheless, if autumn or winter planting isn’t feasible, this versatile bean can also be sown in spring for a respectable summer crop.

Ideal for freezing or can be stored as dried beans. A real treat when enjoyed fresh

Support is required for optimal growth.

Growing Broad Beans, Cultivation Notes

Best sown direct in the early spring into reasonably fertile soil with a pH between 6.5 and 6.8. Sow about 50mm (2 ins) deep in staggered double rows spaced 25 cm (10 ins) apart with the seeds spaced at 20cm (8 ins) in the rows. Allow 60cm (24ins) between double rows.

Germination may be slow in cold weather, the optimum germination temperature is between 8ºC and 15ºC. Heavy rain can cause some germination failures and seeds can be eaten by pests. To cover any gaps start some off in pots or deep root trainers undercover, about a week or two after sowing direct. Any surplus plants can go in at the end of the row.

Once the pods begin to set, pinch out the tops to deter blackfly.
