Following a link in the Seed News to DEFRA’s Plant Varieties and Seed Gazette (http://www.defra.gov.uk/planth/pvs/gaz.htm), I notice that under a statutory notice concerning varieties which renewal beyond 10 year period has not been applied, is Horsehead – a dwarf french bean that is suitable for drying (“Well suited for UK growing. Dark red beans excellent for soups, casseroles and chilli con carne. Young pods can be eaten fresh.” quoted from the Organic Gardening Catalogue 2005). Lucky we haven’t eaten all the beans yet, guess I’d better save the seeds. The beans are very tasty, so we’d like to grow it again. The seeds are pretty – will get round to taking a picture of these later.
