    Default Anyone come across any 'Daniels' varieties

    Just wondered if anyone has come across whilst browsing any seeds with names that are preceded with Daniels. The only one I have found is Lettuce - Daniels' Continuity from Thomas Etty.

    Daniels Brothers of Norwich Seed Merchants were apparently responsible for introducing 1200+ varieties I would like to think that more than 1 variety has survived over the 100 years.

    Any help would be great.

    Many thanks as always

    NO SEED. Ex HDRA. A scarlet runner with mottled black/purple beans. Our most popular climbing bean: Very tasty - “you won’t want to eat another bean once you’ve eaten these ones”. Original HDRA name is actually “Daniel’s Defiance” after a long-closed seed company in Norwich, England. The name changed out here – was it a misprint, or is there a story here?

    Thank you VC. Not sure about the tom can only trace it back to Germany there is a similar one and that seems to be American Typical a Norfolk bean is in New Zealand but least another variety has survived. Love the catalogues.

    Thank you for all those. Guess I will be busy for a bit

    I'm sure Daniel's Defiance has been in an HSL seedlist - in fact vague feeling I ordered it once but I've looked through my seeds and can't find any leftovers.

    You are a little star. I know it is only vaguely familiar but was it the runner. They had quite a few Daniels' Defiance - Brussel Sprout, Cabbage, Cue and Runner that I have found so far
