I grew some (eating ones from supermarket pack) in the gh this summer. Planted 1st June, harvested dry after 4 months. Only one plant survived out of four, dwarf plant, small crop (about 12 seeds in all).
I also grew Seeds of Italy - BUTTERBEAN FAGIOLO DI SPAGNA (UK only) on the lotty, and got a few more from them, but still only about 25 beans in all from 4 plants.
The best, by far, has been Moonlight runner bean ~ hugely prolific and a lovely fat white "butter bean" seed
