Okay tell me about black seeded marconi

mcleod(8a)March 27, 2013

Just got a package of seed in today. I'm still trialing different varieties of "flat beans" aka romano types. The missus wasn't sold on Romas last year or Romano the year before or Jeminez the year before (I wasn't sold on the difficulty I had growing it either). We've pretty much decided on a bush variety and this year I googled what others were talking about as a good tasting bean and this one came up so what the H I ordered the seed.
So what should I expect.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

This is from an SSE grower in Illinois. It was last offered on 2011,

2011: 55, Heirloom Romano-type, meaty with great flavor and very productive, seeds are large egg-shaped black, CV Go38
