I have grown the “Grano Nero” beans for a few seasons (thanks to generous packets of seeds!), but thought I would change it up. These are fantastic. I think I like the flavor better than the Nero. The leaves, stems and beans are more hairy and I think are more pest-resistant - which in Hawaii is important! Big producer and they grow even taller than the Nero. I have had to add a second trellis for the vines to grow down. I am cooking some right now. My new favorite.
