-These robust and high-yielding climbing beans from northern Italy add variation to the garden and kitchen. The dried beans are speckled with beige-brown markings. They are great in stews, soups, or bean salads.
Sow from mid-May to early June at a distance of at least 60 cm and not any less. Sow about 7 seeds at a depth of 2 cm. As they say, “Beans must hear the bells ringing.” Place a 2.5 m stake in the center of the circle for the tendrils to climb. They respond well to ample compost and watering as needed. Harvest the dry pods then thrash and separate the beans from the chaff.
