Product Information

‘Moonlight’ is the world’s first ever self-pollinating white flowered runner bean. This breakthrough has meant that the flowers will set in almost any weather, guaranteeing a fantastic crop!

The delicious stringless beans grow up to 25cm (10in) long and have a great texture and classic runner bean taste. This heavy cropping variety will produce plenty of mouth-watering fresh beans for your plate and plenty more for the freezer. Versatile and nutritious, they are a classic cooked veg, and are perfect when lightly steamed or boiled.

Runner beans are highly nutritious and rich in vitamin C and a good source of fibre. Trim and blanch surplus crops to store in an airtight container or bag in the freezer. They will freeze well, retaining good flavour and texture when cooked from frozen.
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence and look forward to a bumper harvest.

Supplied as 6 plug plants, ready for growing on or planting. Growing to 3m (10ft), beans will be ready to harvest from July to October.
