Borlotto Bush Bean

70 days. Also known in culinary circles as Tongues of Fire, this celebrated Italian Bush Bean grows up to 2 feet tall and produces long, edible white pods that are heavily streaked and splotched with dark pink. While the pods are best eaten whole when young and tender, pods that are allowed to mature yield shelling beans that are cream speckled with deep red. They are delicious fresh and can be dried, as well, for warming winter soups and stews. (OP.)
