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!

Review:

We bought this bean for our annual cassoulet feast, but it is so good that we are using it for other dishes calling for white beans. Holds its shape well and is a meaty, tasty bean

What are the pros? Gives TONS of dry beans

What are the cons? Takes awhile to fully mature

Review:

This bean is magic! Trust me! I planted one packet and got TONS of dry beans in return. I actually forgot this was a pole bean and so planted them without support, scratching my head when they kept getting taller and taller and sent out vines for climbing. Had to remedy the situation by shoving a few 7' tomato cages down the row. They climbed on without a problem and grew past the top. They took awhile to load up with actual beans and then more time to fully mature into dry beans (to be expected). But the wait was worth it! Unfortunately one of the tomato cages blew over during a windy night and pulled out about a third of my row... but the remaining gave me 5 quart jars of dry beans!!! We've eaten them a few times and they are delicious and creamy, absolutely delicious in a soup! The vines were still maturing beans through January!!! Just pulled them out, and we've had several frosts. NUTS! I had enough beans to save for this coming season and I'm so excited to do it all over again!

What are the pros? Very easy to grow

What are the cons? None

Review:

Haricot Tarbais is the quintessential Cassoulet bean. I bought it specifically to cook this traditional south-western France dish. I wasn't disappointed. 100% germination rate. Very easy to grow. We trained it on wood garden obelisks I made which the vines covered beautifully. We got lots of compliments on the look of the whole thing from neighbors and passers-by. I can't comment on productivity yet. It was grown in a very poor soil. The vines were healthy and the dried beans excellent. This year I will grow it in a properly prepared bed. I'll come back to comment on yields at the end of the up-coming season but, reading other comments, I suspect it'll be a very good yield.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, very high yield

What are the cons? None

Review:

I tested out growing around 8 different types of beans in my garden this year, for drying, and these beat the others hands-down in terms of their vibrant growth and prolific production. It wasn't even close. As someone trying to identify candidate staple food crops, I couldn't be happier with the yield from the Haricot Tarbais beans. I will definitely plant these again!

What are the pros? Not fussy

What are the cons? None

Review:

Very easy pole bean to grow. Very productive. We harvest several times the young green beans for saute then let them go so they would mature. They were great both ways, but you can't beat the beautiful white beans - first class. We will grow these again next year for sure.
