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.

    Where did you grow this variety? Midwestern US

    This was one of the most productive bush beans in my garden. It germinates very quicklly, even in coolish soil. I have planted this in mid april for two years in a row, in southern Indiana…and it always germinates very quickly. It does very well, even in the poorest worst clay…and I have extremely heavy clay soil. This bean produces a wonderful ‘bean broth’…and the beans are fantastic tasting. Really creamy but also very hearty. Once you taste these, you will never go back to kidney beans 😉
