Bush. 65-70 days. Also known as Borlotto Bush Bean, this is one of the most striking and colorful beans we have seen with incredible eating quality to match. This heirloom is a perfect dual-purpose variety. The pods can be eaten at green bean stage or left to mature into a silky, creamy cooked bean. An edible ornamental, the tidy bush plants are dripping with flame-striped pods. These make the wonderful baked beans as well! This old bean comes from Tierra del Fuego at the southern tip of South America.
