I just received a few of these in trade this week and I'm hoping to grow them next year. This bean is only being grown by two farmers in Italy now, another bean that needs preservation? The only information I have is it's a prolific pole bean, needs a 8ft. trellis and it's good in the green bean stage. If successful I hope to share a few seeds next fall with a few, I say a few because I'll probably only be growing one pole. A picture of the seed below. Annette

LOL Keith, how do I find these beans, well, you of all people should know what a big scrounge I am :). I got this one from a gal who had them listed on the Canadian Exchange Forum. I'm always on the lookout for interesting or rare heirloom beans, after I've grown them and have enough seed I like to share with as many people as I can.
