Question re Brittle Wax Dwarf French Beans & Di Nizza Marrow
I went a bit mad in Lidl today and bought some seeds for unusual looking veg (to my eyes anyway although I know they are probably quite common).
Has anyone grown either the Brittle Wax beans or the Di Nizza Marrow?
I have never tried marrow and I think these are small ones from look of the picture.
Also, do yellow french beans taste the same as green ones? I just thought it would make a nice change to have a bit more colour on our dinner plates!
I think the marrow seeds were 29p and the beans 47p.

Dunno but I have got all sorts of weird and wonderful beans to grow (weird and wonderful to me anyway). I sowed some yellow dwarf beans last night and some red beans that I can't actually remember whether they are dwarf or not now I come to think of it... oh, and some green dwarf onesWarning: I have a dangerous tendency to act like I know what I'm talking about.

Also, I checked the other bean and my suspicion that on reflection it maybe wasn't a dwarf was correct - oops. It is Borlotti Lingua di Fuoco which is a climbing bean. Ah well, I can always resow if it doesn't make it
On the subject of beans - can anyone recommend a suitable shelly bean for two / three sisters i.e. climbing bean that doesn't mind being stopped at about 5 feet?Warning: I have a dangerous tendency to act like I know what I'm talking about.

I won't make the mistake (as I am a newbie to all of this) of starting my beans now as I have done with my runners and other dwarf beans (Tendergreen) which I started about a fortnight ago.

I have always had very good results with Lidl seeds. The Zucchini di Nizza are excellent courgettes. You can eat them at golf ball size or leave them until they reach the size of tennis balls and they are very good sliced and grilled (or griddled).
