Borlotti Bean- Red Rooster

Phaseolus vulgaris

  • Dwarf (Bush)
  • Great for both dried beans and pods

Dwarf (bush) bean. Plants produce large pods, up to 12cm long, that are green with red speckles containing speckled red seeds(beans) that dry to a tan colour. Pods are excellent eating when young but are more often left to fully mature for dried bean production. The seeds within the pods are used as a dried bean and have an excellent flavour ideal for soups, stews and homemade baked beans. Very productive. Dried beans store very well.
