This local variety from Isérables (VS) is one of the most flavourful dry beans. It keeps its lovely light-beige colour and round-oval shape upon cooking. The cultivation is only for the dry beans not the green pods.
Sowing from middle of May to beginning of June. In a distance of 60cm position about 7 beans in a circle at a depth of 2cm. “Beans need to hear the bells ring”. Put a 2.5m long pole in the centre of each circle. Generous additions of compost pay off. Garden tip: Let the seeds swell in lukewarm chamomile tea for 12h before the sowing.
