Description

Climbing French Bean - Meraviglia di Venezia.  The "100 gram" packet is actually 170 grams,  PRICED AT $6.95. Vigorous plant, heavy producer of up to 10 inch meaty light yellow roma type beans. White seed. No strings & good flavor. The bean salad using this and Supermarconi was a real hit. Like all pole beans, keep picking to encourage continued production. 55 or so days; very early for a pole bean. Vigorous climber needs support: use trellis, tripods or single poles at least 7' tall. Plant after soil has warmed up well since seeds are not treated. 3-4 seeds around base of each pole or 2 seeds/six inches for trellis. Thin to one/six inches for trellis, 2 plants for poles. 30 grams. Approx. 80 seeds. The 170 gram pack contains approx. 440 seeds.

Pole beans have approximately 1 seed per gram.

Bean Meraviglia di Venezia

I love these! They taste great and grow really well in the mid Atlantic region. 5 stars!

Easy to grow

These easy to grow beans have an excellent bean flavor and are sweet. I put two poles in the ground and tied a length of baling twine between them, I planted the beans in a row and when the plants came up I tied them with kite string to the top baling twine. (As a teenager I worked in tobacco tying up plants, so I copied that idea) They grew nicely and were easy to see to pick because of their yellow color. Then I want on an extended vacation and by the time I got back the beans were hanging on thick and were large. There were so many that I froze most of them for the winter. Boy, they were excellent frozen - fresh bean flavor plus vitamin A since they are yellow beans.
