A very heavy cropping runner bean that crops well even in dry conditions. Runner Bean 'Desiree' produces long, broad pods up to 30cm (12") in length that are completely stringless. The beans of this white flowered variety produce few seeds, making them particularly flashy and flavoursome. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 30cm (12").
Companion planting: Try growing runner beans with sweet peas to attract pollinating insects to the flowers, and nasturtiums to draw aphids away from your crop.
