The guar bean or cluster bean is an annual legume, a plant of the pea and bean family. For best growth it requires full sunshine, flashing rainfalls that are moderately frequent, and well drained soil.
However, it is extremely drought tolerant and thrives in semiarid regions where most plants perish.

Violette Climbing Beans have beautiful deep purple pods which turn dark green on cooking. They have a fine flavour and harvests over a long period in either glasshouse or out in the open. Climbing beans such as this variety should be supported much in the same way runner beans are.
Use fine mesh netting for support tied between two poles at the end of each row as it is easier than tying up canes.
