Haricot Tarbais Bean

Pole, 90 days. Plump snowy-white variety has been grown for centuries around the village of Tarbais, in southwestern France. Used primarily as a dry bean, including its traditional forte, as a main ingredient of cassoulet. Skins unusually thin and delicate, lower starch content than other types, and of remarkable tenderness!

What are the pros? Easy to grow, flavor

Review:

These beans grew around nearly every pole, sunflower, and corn stalk that I planted this year and only a few plants didn't produce a healthy plant. I'm sure that had more to do with user error than the beans themselves. Not only were they easy to grow and fun to shuck with my daughters, but we cooked them up when we had the chance and they are the creamiest bean. I chose these originally because they are the lowest bean on the glycemic index for those of you who need to worry about that and they don't disappoint.

What are the pros? None so far

What are the cons? Poor yields. Poor germination.

Review:

I was very excited to plant these, but time has proved that the Pacific Northwest might not be the ideal place to grown them. I planted in mid July and we had a moderately hot (for us) summer (80s). I had a germination rate of 55%. Of this, only another half produced full sized vines. These have produced a reasonable number of pods, but not heavy. I have not yet harvested (currently near the end of Sept) but will do so shortly as fall rains have gotten here early. The leaves seem appealing to the local deer as well, though they do not eat the pods.

Review:

I saw the price of these when I was checking out a recipe for cassoullet and knew I would have to try them if I ever found some seed. Great choice, cooks up very rich and creamy.
