Climbing French bean – Borlotti (Organic)

£2.50

This bean variety produces gorgeous plump beans with beautiful pink speckles on the pod as well as on the bean.  They are widely used in Italian cooking and have a sweet flavour with a creamy texture when cooked. They are fabulous eaten either young in the pod – raw or cooked, or shelled and eaten fresh. Otherwise allow them to harden off and used like a dry bean for later.

Borlotti beans can be grown indoors or outdoors. They are not as prolific as runner beans but certainly have a place in the garden not just as an eye-catcher but as the tasty, good quality bean that it is.

We love them for their excellent taste, colour and versatility. They will make great homemade baked beans with a tomato sauce or a delicious addition in a stew.
(Approximate seed count – 60)
