The Tozer Seed’s runner bean breeding programme is the most extensive anywhere in the world. We have created a new generation of varieties with improved pod set, smoother fleshier pods, reduced string and enhanced flavour.
  • White Flowered – Moonlight

    PRODUCT SHEET
    The culmination of many years of breeding work, Moonlight is the earliest variety of a new line incorporating the genetics of climbing French bean types. This gives Moonlight all the flavour of a runner bean plus the potential for some self-pollination. The pods produced are very smooth and fleshy and approximately 25cm long.
  • White Flowered – Snowstorm

    Runner Bean Snowstorm
    PRODUCT SHEET
    A white flowered variety with longer pods of up to 30cm. Snowstorm has vastly improved set and eating quality compared with traditional runner beans, as a result of the incorporation of French bean genetics. Great texture and very smooth pod finish.
  • White Flowered – White Emergo Snowy

    PRODUCT SHEET
    Our own reselected and improved stock of this universally grown, white flowered variety. The pods are 24 to 28cm in length, smoother and better quality than other selections on the market. It performs and yields very well under higher temperatures, making it a good variety to grow in Africa and in the ever increasing temperatures of the British summer.
