Pea & Bean Seeds


Peas and beans are easy to grow and great for children too. Sowing in succession (every few weeks) means you'll have a continuous crop throughout the summer. Try growing sweet peas next to your runner beans to improve pollination.

Pea 'Shiraz' (Mangetout)

Pisum sativum

 Customer Rating
From British breeding, this is the first commercially grown purple variety! The attractive bicoloured flowers of Mangetout Pea 'Shiraz' form stunning flat, purple pods that are best harvested young and eaten raw, steamed or added to stir frys. The purple pods are rich in healthy anthocyanin (antioxidant) pigment, although the colour will fade to dark green when pods are steamed or boiled. With powdery mildew resistance and good tolerance to downy mildew, this superb variety makes a handsome addition to the vegetable plot or containers on the patio. Height: 100cm (39”). Spread: 25cm (10”).

Pea 'Kenobi' (Maincrop)

Pisum sativum

Maincrop.

Extend the sowing season with this major development in pea breeding! In our UK trials, Pea 'Kenobi' was sown in late July and pods were starting to swell by mid October. This semi-leafless variety is virtually self supporting when grown in a block, and will produce 3-4 pods per node, giving a good average yield of 8 peas to the pod. Good downy and powdery mildew resistance also helps to maximise cropping and prolong the season. Height: 60cm (24”). Spread: 25cm (10”).

Runner Bean 'Firestorm'

Phaseolus coccineus

The first completely self fertile scarlet-flowered runner bean! Runner Bean 'Firestorm' produces stringless beans which are slightly thicker, sweeter and more tender than other varieties. This superb runner bean will even set in high temperatures or poor weather, so you can be sure of good crops throughout the summer. With its excellent garden performance and attractive scarlet flowers it no wonder that this variety was given a Gardening Which Award. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 30cm (12").
