Pole Romano Beans

(8 varieties to choose from)  As pictures become  available will change seeds with edible pod stage. Updated for 2020.

Aunt Mary’s Meat

Aunt Mary’s Meat - 80 days - A truly unique bean shared with us from Ron and Nancy Hendrickson.  A most impressive size and the flavor is great.  The widest, thickest pods of any Romano bean I have seen.  Large, dark black seeds that add a good flavor to the cooked beans.  Issue that makes this not a large scale bean is a rare genetic defect where the seeds tend to split open while ripening, making the germination difficult if not planted in very warm soil.  When planted in a good, warm soil germination is great.  Please do not plant too early. UNAVAILABLE FOR 2020
