I first grew ‘Borlotto di Nova Ponente’ from seeds I received from a bean collector in northern Italy and am offering the offspring for gardeners in the US who are interested in unusual bean varieties in general, or in Italian heirloom varieties in particular. The seeds are oval and deep red marbled with lighter red, and are used as a dry bean. Full sun. Annual.
Collected in early to mid August 2023. At least 12 seeds. Shipping to US addresses only.
Please read the germination information as well before ordering.
