Features

The round-podded climbing bean Mechelse Tros has relative small beans arranged in small trusses. Mechelse Tros has a high yield and can be picked early. The legumes are thin and a little flattened. Sow twice if you want to increase the harvesting period. Cultivation should take place on a sheltered location and make a stable construction on which the plants can climb.

An important advantage of climbing beans is that there are no problems with mould, because the crop is able to dry well. Other advantages are the long picking periods and high yields. Never sow beans with cold or wet weather. It is also important to sow sufficiently deep (3-4 cm) in order to prevent mice and birds from eating the seeds.
