This bean is home in the Emmental and rightly it deserves its name. Tender as a green bean and full in flavour, as a dried bean – a shiny black grain – it is progressively gaining in popularity throughout the whole country.
Sowing from middle of May to beginning of June. In a distance of 60cm position about 9 beans in a circle at a depth of 2cm. “Beans need to hear the bells ring”. Put a 2.5m long pole in the centre of each circle. Generous additions of compost pay off. Garden tip: Let the seeds swell in lukewarm chamomile tea for 12h before the sowing.
Sowing quantity 400 - 600 g/Are
