Bush Dry Bean, Rosso di Lucca (Organic)
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.
