Coles Dwarf

This broad bean is used mainly by home gardeners.

Pods are approximately 13.5 long and 2-3cm wide, and can contain up to 5 seeds per pod. Flowers are purple and white in colour and produce a brown seed.

This plant grows to approximately 80cm high, and matures in approximately 70 days

This variety is a little shorter in plant height and earlier in maturity than Aquadulce.

Broad beans are a cool weather vegetable, and planting occurs in most areas in Autumn and Winter. Crop yields can be significantly affected by frost at flowering, cold weather at flowering, as well as it being too hot when flowering. Bees also assist in pollination.

Broad beans are open pollinated, so genetically they self reproduce. Lack of pod set will be caused by either agronomic or environmental reasons.

Please note that broad bean seed is a prohibited item to import into Australia, so our variety choices are very limited.
