    Default Yellow Podded Broad Bean

    No I haven't been smoking anything strange or snorting rhubarb schnapps.

    I was reading a book the other day & it mentioned a yellow podded broad bean. I have a crimson flowered one already but this sounds really decorative.

    So, have any of you grapes either got any seeds of these to spare (3 or 4 will do to start with as I can nurture them along in the greenhouse) or know where I may aquire some from as I'm going to start & grow more veg at home & move the flowers to the lottie with the long term crops like tatties, leeks etc.

    Hi Nick

    I cannot help you with a yellow podded broad bean but have just came back from Dobies garden centre where they had seeds at half price. I managed to pick up a packet of Unwins broad Bean Red Epicure

    Have you had any dealings with these as the seeds are 'chestnut crimson' and keep their colour when cooked....I managed to get the last packet!

    Just out of interest the other packet i got was 'Aqualunce claudia'

    Hi Snadger,

    Never grown epicure but I grow Super aquadulce (just a re-selection) & thats a good bean. I suspect I could be struggleing witht the yellow podded job, I just thought it would be colourful to grow as I'm having a complete re-design at home.

    I used to grow my Chrysanths at home but since I put my little greenhouse back up I haven'y got the room anymore to grow as many, so I'm going to grow them & my dahlia's up the lottie with the "long term crops" (spuds, leeks, brussels & the like) & the shorter life crops(peas, beans lettuce etc) I shall grow at home in 2 or 3 raised beds. Just got to make the beds now

    It's becoming a bit of a quest this one LJ.

    It was mentioned in the Victorian Kitchen Garden video so I've just e-mailed the webmaster of the village to see If Harry Dodson is still alive, he's be 86 now so fingers crossed.

    If I can get a name out of him I may be in with a shout of tracking it down other wise it looks like its extinct

    Hi Nick,

    Have you tried www.fecoprunners.net Not exactly local but they have what I think you are looking for?? There looks to be 2 types near the bottom of the page.

    Sorry if I am wrong
