Great Runner Bean for freezing

For years I have been freezing different runner beans for winter use and they always tasted quite bland until last year when I tried a variety called 'Lady Di' and much to my wifes surprise they tasted more or less like fresh beans straight from the garden.
I blanch them in the usual way after slicing followed by a dip in ice water, dry, freeze on trays then bag up and AT LAST have perfect frozen runners!
Will grow extra this year to last through!
Not sure if it is allowed but they came from Thompson & Morgan.

Lady Di Runners

Thanks Brian, have made a note, you can order on line but I am sure they will be OK to plant in April when we get back from the UK.
Having looked them up on the website I see they are completely stringless, which will save a job when preparing them, thanks again
Yummy
