Borlotti vs Taylor Horticultural Beans

Can anyone comment on similarities and differences between Borlotti and Taylor Horticultural beans? Also on their suitability for Southern California gardens. Zone 10 just a bit inland so summers are hotter than on the coast.

RE: Borlotti vs Taylor Horticultural Beans

Borlotti is an old pole bean. Very rampant vines. Like the Dwarf Horticultural, Taylor strain it is in the Cranberry bean group. BUT the Taylor is a true bush bean. The Taylor bean has a much shorter growing season and while it is sometimes referred to as a Pinto type, it has the Cranberry bean flavor. I don't know the Southern Cal climate, but either should grow anywhere you can grow beans.

Anyone have comments on flavors and textures of these two beans? Similar, very different?
