Pole Bean Multi-Coloured (Phaseolus vulgaris var. vulgaris) - Jimenez

Pole Bean Multi-Coloured (Phaseolus vulgaris var. vulgaris) - Jimenez

An heirloom variety of French bean Jimenez is a strong grower and produces heavy crops of large long flat pods. The vines or plants can reach 7-8 feet tall but a 5 foot tepee, trellis or poles are usually sufficient.

Pods can be sliced when green and used as fresh beans or left to mature, then shelled and dried.

Highly colourful, French Bean Jimenez has a strong resistance to Bean Common Mosaic Virus.

Perfect for a sunny, well-drained spot, French bean Jimenez prefers to grow in moist, fertile soil away from strong winds, but it can also be grown successfully in pots.

Both the leaves and the stalks of the flowers are used as flavouring as well as a stir fry ingredient. The flowers can also be used as a spice. Garlic chives are extremely hardy and can survive very low temperatures (some have been know to survive -35 C) in winter and sprout again in spring when the temperature rises.
