Phaseolus vulgaris

Annual plant, open pollinated.

Bush bean. Shelling bean. Snap bean. Dry bean.

Also known as Borlotto lingua di Fuoco. 

A very unique heirloom with green pods splashed with mahogany stripes. The young stringless pods are edible, then the pods can be used shelled, or as dry beans when they are older. Also great canned or frozen. 

Days to maturity: 60 days for green, 75 shelling beans, 95 days dried. 

30 seeds per pack. 

Seed starting:

For bush beans, pole beans and runner beans. 

Direct seed in your garden once all danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed. Beans do not tolerate frost. Early June is when we plant around here. Sow seed about 1” deep. Darker coloured seeds tend to germinate better in cooler soils. 

Pole beans and runner beans need something to climb!
