Borlotto Bush or Tongues of Fire Bean

Bush, 65-70 day. Also known as Horto. Reputedly originated in Tierra del Fuego in South America, but extremely popular in Italy, where cooks like the beans’ subtle characteristic of picking up other flavors from a dish. Bush-type plants yield pods of white with flame-like red streaks, making great snaps when very young; beans are light pink with darker red mottling, reminiscent of the Cranberry Bean. Makes an outstanding baked bean.
