Plant details

Hunter' yields heavy crops of long, straight, stringless pods, which helped it to win the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit. To get the best harvests, grow in a sheltered spot that is protected from wind. As it is a climbing variety, it will need support, such as a wigwam of canes. Harvest from August to September.
