(Pole) When Joe first learned about the Monachelle Bean from the area around Norcia in Central Italy, he went crazy!  this is an extremely rare bean that is now being cultivated only by a few traditional farmers.  In the gastronomic capital of Umbria: Norcia, Joe could not find a single bean, after tons of questions and false hope, he stumbled upon the Angelini Family in a little village called Trevio.  There Mrs. Angelini assured him on the phone that she had a few of the beans left.  Joe arrived to the village to find one of Mrs. Angelini's sons walking down the street, asking where the Angelini family lived he said: " Welcome" we are the Angelinis!  Joe was treated with extraordinary hospitality and the Angelini Monachelle Bean is now the prize of his visit.  This rare bean has been listed as a rare Italian heirloom and now our readers can be a part of growing it and sharing it for future generations!

What are the pros? pretty

What are the cons? genetic cross up?

Review:

The beans were easy enough to grow but my saved seed came out looking different than the seed I planted. Instead of a mostly white side and a mostly purple side mine were splotchy all over. I'm not sure if it was due to a genetic mix up at baker creek or due to harvesting practice. Has anyone else noticed this?

Review:

Growing directions didn't specify whether these were bush or runner beans so I planted them on a 3 foot high trellis. Should have grown them on a higher trellis as they sprawled up and over the trellis by mid summer. Every one of the 15 seeds in my packet germinated. I picked them after the pods dried and they produced about a pound of dried shelled beans total and probably would have produced more if I had grown them on a taller trellis and they hadn't become such a tangled mess. Delicious in soups as they retain their firm texture without getting mushy. Saved enough seed and will definitely grow again this year.

Review:

This bean is a fantastic grower, I really was not expecting the amount of foliage from this plant and the prolific amount of beans. I was very surprised! I would say that this plant was probably this first to bloom in my garden. I would also recommend a tall tresle because it want to grow eight feet. The bean itself is about medium size purple and white and of good quality. It is a shame that this bean is still in the rare category because I believe that this bean should be in the top five for heirloom growers, maybe soon it will achieve that status. Overall I think that this is a wonderful bean and will not disappoint who ever grows it.

Review:

So I put these seeds in about 10 days ago, 50% germination rate just planting them in a pot on my porch (full sun) the three that grew came up in about 6 days and are now about 4 inches tall. I'm excited to see how fast these take off and start producing, but I'm very pleased so far.
