Bean Meraviglia di Venezia (58-5)

$3.50

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.

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

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.

I have grown this bean for 10 years in my market garden, and it has produced earliest, latest, and when other beans were defeated by bad weather and bugs. It is delicious small or very large, no strings attached, and it is pretty too. I wish I could find a green bean this good!
