Borlotto Lingua di Fuoco Nano, organic seeds
Is the only bean you need to grow really. It yields tender quite light-green, flattened round 13 cm long beans without fibres, early. A week or so later the thick unripe seeds are ready for harvest. The pods are shelled and the beans boiled until tender (10 min.), a nutritious delicacy with butter and herbs. After another few weeks the ripe beans are ready for threshing and winter storage. This plant is sturdy, quite tall and very fruitful. Borlotto is a true "˜fire tongue"™ with very red-speckled pods when fully ripe. This is a fast, very uniform, useful shelling bean. The seed is white-yellow with wine-red patterns. A portion contains about 50 seeds.
