Bush Dry Bean, Rosso di Lucca (Organic)
$3.50 – $60.00
Phaseolus vulgaris. Rosy Speckled. 90 days.
Very productive and early bean. Beautiful rosy red, oblong beans with dark stripes and speckles. Said by growers in Italy to have a rich delicious flavor, pairing well with other strong flavors such as garlic, sage and rich fruity olive oil. We agree and love to use it as a replacement for kidney beans. Seed Ambassador Kayla Preece collected this variety for us in 2006 from Agricultori Custodi, a seed preservation group in Tuscany, Italy.
