Phaseolus Vulgaris

The Red Rooster Borlotti is a Dwarf (bush) bean. The plants produce large pods that are approx. 12cm long, green with red speckles containing speckled red seeds (beans) that dry to a tan colour.

The pods are tasty eating when young but are often left to fully mature for dried bean production. The seeds within the pods are used as a dried bean and have a delicious flavour, ideal for soups, stews and homemade baked beans. Very productive bush, dried beans store very well.

Sow 20mm deep, Spring and Summer, full sun, well drained soil. Germination approx. 7 - 10 days.  Pick often to encourage more growth.

5 seeds per packet
