((Angelini Family Selection, 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? Beautiful flower and bean

What are the cons? Should have planted more

Review:

Love the look of both the green vine, purple and white flowers and the gorgeous speckled dry beans. Haven't cooked yet. Sad to say I did not get a big production, so next year I am planting more and going to wait a bit later as the 100 plus weather here stunted the amount. I was another reviewer who planted in hot Florida in late August, so I'm going to give that a try in the next day or two. It's 111 degrees today. I grew Three Sisters style with corn, beans and squash, I'll be planting these along a trellis this time. Will update on the outcome later in the Fall.

Review:

I planted a few plants on a trellis in August, and when most my garden petered out, forgotten by November, these things just kept on producing through the year, unwatered and untended. The beans dry with the most gorgeous color. They look hand - painted. If resewn some with the spring summer garden, so not sure how they'll handle Florida heat.

Review:

I have grown these heirloom Italian pole beans for 4 seasons now. I purchased them in the winter of 2013, that spring all seeds planted grew and produced copious amounts of beautiful little beans. I ate some, but reserved many to plant again in the spring. I grew them at three different residences, and each time they preformed as before. This year in 2016, I grew them in a "three sisters" fasion, and they did well climbing corn stalks as the trellis, when cooked they have a mild creamy yet firm texture, and are superb in soup. This spring again they will be planted in my garden. They seem to be very disease and mildew resistant, just excellent in all aspects. I would highly recommend them.

Review:

I planted a packet of these beans in 2015 (15 seeds). They grew well on a fence in the garden and produces many beautiful flowers and lots of bean pods. I let them dry on the vine and then harvested a half gallon of these beautiful beans. I used them in soups during the winter as well as a side dish with garlic and olive oil. They are delicious and hold their shape with a nice texture when cooked. in 2016, I planted triple the amount of seeds and again we harvested almost a gallon and a half of dried beans.

Review:

I planted 5 seeds in May, the wines grew beautifully trough all Summer flowering and producing till the end of September, it is a beautiful dry bean not to be used as green pod, out of 5 small seeds we harvested nearly 2 mason jars of dry beans,I'd say about 2 pounds,a little goes a long way with this one and they tasted quite good.It's very decorative and good for hummingbirds and bees as well.Love it.
