BEAN CLIMBING ‘Portuguese Butter’

Botanical Name: Phaseolus vulgaris

An heirloom Portuguese romano butter bean with yellow, 2cm wide, yellow fattened pods, 15cm long. The young 2cm beans are tasty, very fleshy, and stringless.

When mature, the dried pods contain beautiful purple and cream mottled seeds to use as a dried bean.
