A very resistant variety with little membrane in the 25-cm long, flat and wide stringless pods. The pod is light green. Algarve is a little earlier than the well-known Helda. For an early harvest, sow in a greenhouse or pre-sow in pots. Beans thrive in the warmth. Too much wind and particularly night frost can be very harmful. Sow or transplant after mid May in the garden. Erect poles in a roof shape, and sow approx. 5 seeds next to each pole. Later guide the plants upwards.
