Tongues of Fire Bean

         
 
9 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
A delicious green bean that reputedly originated in Tierra del Fuego in South America, but extremely popular in Italy, where cooks like the beans’ subtle characteristic of picking up other flavors from a dish. Bush-type plants yield pods of green with flame-like red streaks, making great snaps; beans are light pinkish green with darker red mottling, reminiscent of the Cranberry Bean. Makes an outstanding baked bean.

What are the pros? Great coloring and taste

What are the cons? None so far

Review:

I started one plant indoors just to get a taste before spring hits and bulk outdoor planting. They are really good straight off the plant. Between my kid and my husband, none will survive long enough to become shell beans. Great coloring too.

What are the pros? Rigorous and beautiful

What are the cons? Nothing yet

Review:

These beans were the first out of the ground. Very quick growing bushy plants. The beans themselves are incredible looking - even more beautiful than pictured. Ours were fluorescent pink pods with darker red pink stripes! Beautiful! The young pods were tough when I tried them but no matter, we grew them for shelling. Not as productive shelled as I hoped, but the shelled beans sure are pretty. I am excited to try them as baked beans!

Review:

These beans grow fast once they are on the bush! Some got away from me for regular bean eating, so we dried them for beans for soup for this winter. I plan to plant them again as we really enjoyed them.

Review:

I have these growing under LED lights. Out of ten seeds started, ten sprouted, with only one having any kind of an issue. ( The plant was rooting over its own stem and I decided to pull it ). In two months, these plants have grown to almost 3 feet. They are vining up a trellis and flowering beautifully. I expect to pull some beans to try fresh, but the rest are intended for use as beans I love the flavor of these as beans.. This plant is one of the easiest to grow. Plant it next to a trellis and let it be. Since I grow indoors, I have fans blowing on it to help pollinate, but they should do even better outdoors. I look forward to seeing what kind of a harvest I get from these. So far, so good. As of right now, I plan to plant again this spring.

What are the pros? easy to grow

What are the cons? not as prolific as other beans

Review:

This is my first year growing them. As young, tender fresh beans I find them only so-so. Not as tender as your fresh eating beans. I am excited to use them as a shell bean. That said, the plants grew great and even though I only planted a small quantity (and the rabbits made a meal out of my bean plants), I had enough to yield a couple of pounds of shelled beans. The shells are beautiful and beans themselves are stunning!
