A gardeners' favourite. Broad bean 'Aquadulce Claudia' is the best broad bean for autumn sowing, overwintering plants on the plot outside, for an early harvest the following spring.
Slender pods of 23cm (9") long, are full of succulent white seeded flavoursome beans.
Height: 100cm (39"). Spread: 45cm (18").
Companion planting: Try growing broad beans with summer savory to help repel black bean aphids, a common pest of broad beans.
