Pole Dry Bean, Diecimino (Organic)

Phaseolus vulgaris. Rosy Speckled. 90 days.

Slender pods with rosy-red speckled seeds that are good in soups and pasta e fagioli. Highly productive tall climber. Very beautiful and tasty heirloom originally from Tuscany. We have been growing it for over 10 years and with each harvest we fall in love all over again because it’s just so pretty. Then we eat some and remember the beauty isn’t just skin deep: Diecimino is delicious too! Another variety preserved by Agricultori Custodi, located in Tuscany, Italy, and collected by Seed Ambassador Kayla Preece.

Geographical Origin

Direct sow 1″ deep May through early June in rows that are 1′ apart. Thin seedlings to 3-6″spacing. Protect early sowings from frost. Requires trellising; try T-posts and bailing twine or plant a few weeks after corn or sunflowers for a natural trellis. Shell seeds from fully dry pods by hand or by dancing on them. Winnow to clean. Test for dryness with a hammer – dry beans shatter.

Seed Saving

Some cross-pollination may occur, but beans mostly self-pollinate.

    Where did you grow this variety? Canada

    My rating is based on how the bean grew – very prolifically! Also matured well in the PNW in Canada. Haven’t tasted it yet though they are quite beautiful.

    I’m looking for a delicious dry pole bean that will grow really tall. This bean sounds delicious, but I’m wondering what is the tallest variety of your dry pole beans. Thanks!

      Hi Eva,
      Diecimino will grow tall, but if you want a bean that grows super tall I would recommend runner beans such as our British Pop variety. Our trellis style maxes out at 6 feet, so it is hard for us to estimate which beans is the tallest. All I can say is that O’driscoll is our shortest pole dry bean, growing less tall than the rest.
