Val's Broad Bean
A tall broad bean with long, elegantly curved pods and large buttery beans. One of the first crops we plant in the spring, the seeds germinate well in cold soil and produce abundantly in early July. Val Perkins of Salt Spring Island, BC received this variety from a friend over 30 years ago, and has been growing and selecting it every year since. As such, Val’s Broad Bean is well adapted to growing in the Gulf Islands.
