Roma II Bush Bean

45-55 days. Chacun à son gout - some like their Beans big. Can't get to Tuscany? Grow Roma II and bring Italy to your table. The shape is wide and strappy and the flavor distinctively Romano: rich, beany, intense. We love them: imagine yourself at an outdoor table with family and friends, savoring a heady wine and dipping chewy, crusty bread into olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Now, a platter piled with Roma II, drizzled with olive oil and strewn with shavings of parmigiana and dotted with fresh black pepper. Tall for a Bush Bean, these 2'-tall vigorous plants produce an abundance of flat, wide, romano style Beans, best picked at 5" long. Be careful when cooking, don't overdo it. Roma II freezes well for winter meals of minestrone to warm your heart. (OP.)

  • Information
  • Beans are the mainstay of the kitchen garden: both easy and rewarding. Store-bought can't compare with home-grown Beans; modest toil and small Bean patches yield large returns. Bush Beans abhor cold, damp soils. Wait to sow until soil has reliably warmed to 60°F or by the last frost date. Harvest straight to the kitchen at their optimal size for eating, usually when small.

    Average seed life: 2-3 years.
