Broad Bean Luz de Otono
Aquadulce Claudia seems to be the ‘go to’ variety for overwintering broad beans and is certainly the one that we have used every year and like very much, however last week I caught sight of this.
It’s a variation of Aquadulce and is called Luz de Otono, whilst having the same resistance to cold weather and therefore being described as ‘idea for overwintering’ there appears to be a bonus with this cultivar is that it can also be sown as late as July for a crop in November. We tend to be a bit ‘one and done’ with the sowing of our broad beans and they’re usually finished by mid June but I think to have some in autumn would be a very nice addition to our normal crops.
Let me know in the comments if you’ve tried it or is this a new one for you too?
