Thompson and Morgan
Runner Bean St. George Thompson & Morgan
RHS AGM Winner, producing the heaviest yield of quality pods at the most recent Wisley Runner Bean trial. British bred bicoloured red and white flower, much earlier, heavier cropping with superior quality, smoother, fleshy, pale green 25-30cm pods when compared to ‘Painted Lady’. The straight pods of Runner Bean St George have good ‘snap’ with little string or fibre if picked regularly whilst young.
Dwarf Bean Laguna Thompson & Morgan
Still the industry standard slicing/processing variety, with unbeatable garden performance, for its plant vigour, and huge yields of 12cm (5in) quite fleshy, intense green pods. Happily grows in all soils. Excellent disease resistance and withstands any weather thrown at it.
Mangetout Shiraz Thompson & Morgan
British breeding of the first purple Mangetout. The purple colour is rich in healthy anthocyanin (antioxidant) pigment. Attractive bicoloured flowers form stunning flat, purple Mangetouts to eat raw and stir fry. Can also be steamed although colour will fade, or boiled when colour turns dark green. As with all Mangetouts they are best harvested and eaten young just as the ëpeasí start to show. Powdery mildew resistant and tolerant to downy mildew to help extend the sowing season to early July.
Broad Bean Aquadulce Claudia Thompson & Morgan
This variety is universally recognised as being best for an autumn sowing. Broad Bean Aquadulce Claudia establishes itself very quickly and will produce a very early crop. It is white seeded and the pods are up to 23cm (9 inches) long. Height: 90-100cm (36-40in).
Dwarf Bean Purple Teepee Thompson & Morgan
At last, a purple podded bean which bears its pods above the main foliage. This makes picking easier and ensures improved cropping of long straight pods with less soil splashing etc. Dwarf French Bean Purple Teepee produces pods that are approximately 6in long, stringless and slender with that intangible but appreciated zing to the flavour that many vegetable growers agree only comes to the purple podded types. Pods turn brilliant emerald green in boiling water. Quick maturing.
Runner Bean Red Rum Thompson & Morgan
A very early cropper producing lots of pods and very little foliage, resulting in a tremendous crop of succulentm 15-20cm (6-8in) pods. Runner Bean Red Rum is excellent for organic gardeners as this variety is Halo Blight tolerant. This means it will keep on cropping whilst other varieties are going down with this disease. (Please Note: Seed saved from this hybrid will not come true.)
Runner Bean Tenderstar Thompson & Morgan
Unique new runner bean combining the very best traits of both French and runner beans, Tenderstar really has to be tasted to be believed! The fabulous flavour and tender texture are the result of 15 years of British breeding. Masses of 20cm (8in) long smooth pods are produced throughout the summer, whatever the weather, whilst the stunning bicolour red and pink flowers are an added bonus.
Dwarf Runner Bean Hestia Thompson & Morgan
A superb variety with all the best characteristics of modern runner beans, but on dwarf plants. Runner Bean Hestia is early to crop, often before standard types, with a good yield of tasty, long, straight, stringless pods, held above the soil to avoid disease. Dwarf Runner Bean Hestia is ideal for small gardens, large containers and borders where its bicoloured flowers of red and white make an attractive addition.
Suitable For Freezing
Climbing Bean Fasold Thompson & Morgan
Very early to crop, with a long harvest period and decorative mauve flowers. Climbing Bean Fasold produces a huge harvest of superb flavoured, long, fleshy, round, mid-green stringless pods that are slow to develop seeds. Its semi-climbing, less vigorous habit makes it ideal for growing under glass for the earliest crops.
Runner Bean Desiree Thompson & Morgan
In recent years we have introduced and developed vegetables that have achieved real steps forward in yield, flavour, space saving, disease tolerance; etc. This bean fits into this category and is outstanding in every way.
Almost foolproof, it attains huge crops from a small area. Long, broad, completely stringless, very fleshy 25-30cm (10-12in) pods. Very heavy cropping, often averages 40 pods per plant. As it is a shy seeder there is more juicy fleshy edible area, which accounts for the exceptional flavour. Compared with other runner beans it is much more productive under dry weather conditions. White flowered.
