Tongues Of Fire Shell Bean
Questions? Call 1-800-349-1071
No matter whether you prefer your beans snapped, shelled or baked, this one is a must! Our strain is the original Fire Tongue from Italy with outstanding genetic purity. A magnificent snap bean when picked at 5" (56 days). Pods are flat and a lovely pale green with reddish-purple streaks with an unusual beany flavor. Irresistible in the green shell stage (75 days). Or leave to full maturity to yield a wonderful, flavorful dry baking bean. Seeds are large, round and buff colored with red splashes and dots. Plants are robust with dark green foliage and lovely pink blossoms.
