Haricot Tarbais Bean

Pole bean, 90 days. Our largest bean! 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. Skin is unusually thin and delicate, lower starch content than other types, and of remarkable tenderness!

What are the pros? very productive

What are the cons? takes time to mature

Review:

These beans are amazing, grows well past my 6 foot trellis. Very productive, They take a little time to grow but well worth the wait. Planted four thirty foot rows and have 20 lbs of dry beans. People do not believe you can grow dry beans on the Oregon coast, oh yes you can. Try so you will like um.

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!

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!
