((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 beans

What are the cons? Loses color when cooked

Review:

The first year I grew this, we had a terrible year for germinating and growing all beans and peas. Only 2 out of the 10 seeds grew. The 2 plants were feeble and very little produced. I saved all the seed and planted 60 row feet this year with corn. More of the beans than the corn grew. The plants are prolific and heavy - they toppled several of my corn plants. They lost their color when cooking, so I am not sure if I will grow these again.

What are the pros? Beautiful beans, easy to grow

What are the cons? Low production

Review:

Love, love, love these beans. I wish they grew more pods per plant, as it seems at any given time, I've only got a handful of beans ripe. That's really okay, though, as they seldom make it in from the garden anyhow. They're beautiful and delicious, and make a great part of a stirfry.

What are the pros? Abundance of beans

What are the cons? aphids were a little issue

Review:

I planted these thinking they were green beans. I ate a few of them early and they were fine. It wasn't until I'm pulling them out after a garden disaster that I realized my mistake. I found some beautiful dried beans. I can't say anything about the flavor but I can tell you they were incredibly prolific. I saved some of the dried beans I found and will plant those again next year so I can speak to the taste when I cook them as from dried beans. But as for growing, they were easily six feet before I had to pull them. Not really ornamental but certainly covered with pods.

Trouble with germination

What are the pros? Pretty bean.

What are the cons? Poor germination

Review:

I planted all but three of my seeds (a 10-pack with extras) and only two germinated. I suspect the poor germination was due to a rainy cold snap after planting, and that the seeds rotted. I just planted the three I held back, and hope they will grow. Looking forward to seeing what happens with the ones that make it. I would have rated them higher if they had grown. Hopeful because of the good reviews.

What are the pros? They did pretty well!

What are the cons? Haven't tried them yet!

Review:

I planted all of the beans two years ago. First year growing beans. I had 7 pop up right away. They didn't grow as tall as my Good Mother Stallard. I stopped taking care of them shortly after they sprouted because I became pregnant and was totally wrecked. I managed to harvest all of them dry. I had enough, out of four varieties, to make one serving of beans. And man were they delicious. The rest were saved for seed. I didn't plant last year. But this year I put all of my Monachelle beans in the ground. Super excited to see what they do!
