The midwinter strain of broad bean was developed by Malcolm Allison .  The plants are looking very strong and healthy, exhibiting their hybrid vigour.

The bottom leaves of one plant appears to have rust, but so far it is not having any visible effects on the plant.

Malcolm has warned that this strain of broad bean will not yield well.  But we look forward to harvesting the purple Midwinter broad beans that will result from these flowers!
