As its name suggests, Broad Bean 'Express' is the fastest maturing variety available and an early spring sowing will out yield all others.
This winter hardy, RHS AGM variety produces up to 34 tender, tasty pods per plant. Broad Bean 'Express' makes an excellent broad bean for freezing as it doesn't discolour.
Height: 90cm (35"). Spread: 45cm (18").
Companion planting: Try growing broad beans with summer savory to help repel black bean aphids, a common pest of broad beans.
