Vicia faba Broad Bean 'Statissa' is a superb, compact variety with a neat upright habit that makes it ideal for growing in containers. This early setting variety produces short, slender pods. Harvest them regularly while still small for delicious 'mangetout' pods to eat raw or steamed, or allow the pods to fill out with tasty small beans. Height: 70cm (28in). Spread: 30cm (12in).

This variety has an RHS Award of Garden Merit.
