This Old World species is known also as: English, Horse, Broad, and Tick Bean; and White, Green, and Brown Windsor. Jefferson first planted Windsor beans March 23, 1774 and harvested June 4. In 1794 he noted “wanting ½ peck of more Broad Windsor Beans.” This native of North Africa and SW China does not favor hot, humid summers, and is best for a spring harvest. It is a shrubby, 3-4’, annual with white flowers blotched violet.

Direct sow beans in late winter or early spring, as soon as soil can be worked; in regions with mild winters, sow in fall for an early spring harvest. Plant seeds 1-2” deep, 8-12” apart, in full sun and well-drained soil. 80-100 days to maturity. Harvest tender beans and shell the leathery pod before cooking.

Approximately 8 seeds per pack.
