Tripoli is an exciting new variety of broad bean which offers massive improvements in pod size and yield compared to standard varieties.
Pods regularly contain 6-7 large seeds and have excellent yield potential. The plants have the ability to cope with warmer weather than the standard Aquadulce variety.
Maturity is similar to existing varieties, and should be grown in a similar way.
This Tripoli is a must for professional growers, as it marks the return of the true long podded broad bean varieties.
This Tripoli seed is grown in only small quantities and is hand harvested and hand cleaned, and hence is significantly more expensive than Aquadulce and Coles Dwarf. But the growers who have used this variety are very pleased with the results.
