Description
Sweet, tender and crunchy! Gourmet Delight is a string-less variety of dwarf bush bean that produces tender, sweet, 15cm long, dark green pods that are great to munch on raw, eat freshly steamed or freeze for a later date.

Bush bean plants can sometimes produce pods all at once so it’s important to stagger the sowing of seed across the entire growing seasons to avoid a glut and ensure that fresh beans are always available to pick.

Whilst staking is not always required for these plants, pod laden plants may fall over so using a modest stake is advisable. As with all beans, sow directly into a rich soil and keep mulched to improve water retention. When sowing do not allow soil to get too wet – seeds are prone to rot.

It is best to harvest beans once the pods are about the thickness of a pencil and roughly 10cm long. Harvest daily to increase production and try to eat or preserve immediately to enjoy the best flavour. These take well to freezing, plunge them into boiling water for a minuet and drain, then freeze, it’s that simple!

Grow Notes
This is a dwarf variety which tolerates both hot and cold conditions. Grows well in all soils if not waterlogged. No staking required.

Bush beans, also called dwarf beans, grow as bushes so staking them is optional.

Sow directly into a rich soil and keep mulched to improve water retention. When sowing do not allow soil to get too wet as beans can rot.

Pick regularly to encourage more growth. Pods are best eaten when young and tender. Let pods fully mature if growing for dried beans.
