Dwarf French Bean 'Castandel' was sent out as a trial variety and was reported to have extremely good germination and outstanding performance.

Key Features

  • Prefers full sun

Pack Contents: 200x Dwarf French Bean Seeds

Size: Sufficient for 50ft/15m Row


  • Impressive germination rate
  • Weather-hardy
  • Fantastic value for money

Dwarf French Bean Castandel is the variety for you when trying French beans for the first time or when you’re a seasoned grower. Forgiving to UK weather conditions Castandel is praised for extremely good germination and outstanding performance in forming great quality beans.

Your plants produce very tender, fleshy and stringless pods which is a blessing in the kitchen and so much more palatable on the plate. We recommend you steam Castandel to keep the home-grown flavours intact.

The beans holds well whatever the weather, giving you piece of mind that plants stay in tip-top condition between pickings. You can rely on cropping right through July and onto September with this vigorous and weather-hardy variety. With 200 seeds in every packet, having full sowing and growing instructions, you get a better deal on your French beans that can prove pricy in the supermarket and give you less returns.

If you love the taste of Castandel, consider freezing beans after you have harvested in summer so you have a stock of beans in autumn too and going into the winter.
