    What do you mean by 'disappeared'? Do you mean you just can't find a supplier?

    @Fairygirl  When I search for them on supplier’s sites I keep coming up with ‘discontinued’ …  they’re a really good variety, I’ve grown them several times, although I’ve switched to ‘Moonlight’ for the last couple of years and I’m very pleased with them too. 

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

    I've never understood why anyone likes them @Dovefromabove, so it's not something I'm familiar with. ;)
    I just wasn't sure if that's what @Nick Gurney meant though.

    Ah yes I remember @Fairygirl … you’re not a runner bean fan 😉

    Beans of any kind. The runners are squeaky and the other kinds are grainy.  :D
    All about the texture for me.  ;)
