((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? 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!

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.

What are the pros? Beautiful, grow themselves

What are the cons? None

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.
