DO let me know how the Aeron Purple Star runner beans performed for you.

I would also like to know if you were happy with them and any other comments (good or bad) that you want to make in the form of a review.

You can post your review in the form of a reply to this Topic.

Many thanks -

G.

clap:-) Brilliant Mick! You're ahead of the game - I haven't got mine sown yet! I don't plant them out till the middle of May (we get a lot of wind scorch from the sea here) - so they usually get sown around the second week of April.

Did they all germinate OK?

Woo-Hooo my babies are on the move! If yours are sprouting then none of the other seventy odd recipients of my APS have any excuses!

Made my day that Mick! You're the first to come back with evidence of this year's Aeron Purple Star crop. Thanks! Any failures (just out of interest)?

I've decided to only grow the Aeron Purple Star this year so that I can save plenty of seed for next year without cross pollination. I'm not within half mile from any other bean growers so should keep nice and pure.

Anyway they are all in pots now so I am looking forward to trying them. I suppose, like all purple coloured 'greens' they will cook green and lose their purple colour.

That's good news Tommo! I might be able to spare a few more if you want.

That's about the size of it they grow green, turn purple then go a dark green again when cooked!

If you've got that sort of natural isolation - would you consider growing a row just for my seed stock?

Is that enough for you?

Can you grow them in relative isolation?
