Bush Dry Bean, Borlotto del Valdarno (Organic)
Phaseolus vulgaris. Tan Speckled. 90 days.
Beautiful, classic borlotti bean with an elongated shape. Tan with maroon speckles and stripes. It has a delicious delicate flavor perfectly suited to pasta e fagioli, one of those dishes that everybody seems to cook in Italy. This is one of the most dependable and productive beans in our trials to date, alongside Brighstone. When we grew dry beans for market this was a variety we could count on. Seed Ambassador Kayla Preece collected this for us in 2006 from Agricultori Custodi, a seed preservation group in Tuscany, Italy.
