One of the most attractive beans with bright green flat pods splashed with red which disappear on cooking (steaming helps to retain the colour). It can be used as a flageolet type. Attractive enough to be grown at the back of flower borders, this versatile Italian vegetable is also known as the fire-tongue bean. It can be used fresh or more traditionally, shell the beans, dry them and use during autumn and winter in a wide range of warming dishes. Climbing beans such as this variety should be supported in the same way as you would support runner beans. This family of beans is frost tender and cannot be sown until the weather has warmed up.

Sowing Advice

Sow outdoors after last frost and use a cane structure trellis or wigwam to support beans. Sow in rows 1-2 inches deep 1 seed per cane. Plant a few extra to fill in gaps. Keep well watered and feed weekly.
