French dwarf bean "BORLOTTO LINGUA Dl FUOCO NANO".
A bushy variety of asparagus beans of the famous Italian variety, which are in great demand for their beautiful pods, called "tongues of flame", which reach 20 cm in length. Medium early (70 days) and very prolific variety.
The beans are white with raspberry-red blotches, great for use in soups.
Young beans can be eaten like regular asparagus beans as they are free of the tough parchment layer and fiber and taste delicious!
Sow in beds at the end of May to June after last spring frosts, when soils temperature is above +12+14°C.
Beans are a good source of protein, excellent in casseroles and soups. Legumes can be harvested in July for fresh consumption and in September - for seeds.
