Beauty of Richigen Climbing beans / Pole beans

Beauty of Richigen comes from the valleys of Emmental. It rightly deserves its name as it is beautiful in both appearance and flavour. It is delicious as a green bean—tender and full of flavour; as a dry bean it gives shiny black seeds. Because of its quality and versatility it is gaining popularity throughout the country.

Sow from mid-May to the beginning of June at a distance of 60 cm. Place about 4 beans 2 cm deep in a circle pattern. As they say, “Beans must hear the bells ringing.” So do not sow them too deep. Stick a 2.5 m stake in the circle to give the beans a climbing trail for their tendrils. They respond well to ample compost. Gardener Tip: Soak seeds for 12 hours in lukewarm chamomile tea before sowing.
