A climbing French bean which is a half-hardy annual, (Phaseolus vulgaris) Hunter is a reliable cropper of flat, almost string-less green pods containing lots of flavour and small white seeds. Covered in clusters of white flowers in summer, this is a vigorous climber so will require support.

Hunter is a recipient of the RHS AGM (Award of Garden Merit), for all round excellence.
