best bean for minestrone
I first found these beans in Tuscany. I found some Franchi seed packets in a farm store in a small town near to the organic farm that we stayed at and brought some home. They flourished here in south west Oregon. I didn't get organized enough to save seeds for the next year so I did an internet search and am so thankful to find you. That was 5 years ago and I have grown them every year and every year I grow more than the previous year because I love the rich creamy large beans, 7-8 in a pod makes an easy harvest, and besides they're so pretty on the vine. Everyone always comments because the 6+ ft tall vines are so impressive.
