Description

Great-tasting stringless white-seed bean. Produces uniform and convenient straight beans approximately 6in (15cm) long. Satelit is a exclusive variety with cold tolerance for early-cropping. Pods are held up and away from the foliage for easy pickings of handsome harvests.

Disease resistant to common mosaic virus and anthracnose disease- all you need to know is that you’re safe in the knowledge that this variety will provide you lots of healthy, disease-free beans.

We recommend you position 3 young plants outdoors in their permanent position of flowering and fruiting. Space plants 6in (15cm) apart when you place them outside.

Expect a bowlful to colander-ful of bean pods per plant for the season. If you feed your plants with a potash-rich feed like Westland Sulphate of potash, when your plants are in flower – you may get even more beans.

Keep an eye on the weather. If it’s forecasted a particularly cold night with frosts, cover your plants over with a horticultural fleece, which we provide at Marshalls, in the evening to give them that protection from the cold. This dwarf variety grows to around 18in (45cm) tall.
