Perfetto

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.

Prolific

I planted these beans last year and the vines were very prolific (Zone 6, Missouri). There were lots of fresh beans to share with family, friends, neighbors, and plenty to freeze! This year, I plan to sow this same variety and plan to can a large part of the harvest for winter months. Highly recommended variety.
