What's so special about our Romano Pole Beans?

This variety of string bean produces a ton. The plants grow over 2 meters tall, so they'll up your trellis beautifully. 

The plants keep producing as you harvest. So you get a lot of beans for your buck. 

Sowing and growing

Germination is tough in cold or rainy weather, so give these seeds a head start indoors. Mix together 1 part MM-Mix and 1 part fine Vermiculite, plant your seeds in a pot, and put your pots in the windowsill. 
 
As soon as you see the first seedings, transfer them to their final home outside. The plants will grow over 2 meters tall, so they need a trellis. Plant them in a patch at the back of your raised bed. 8 plants fit in one square patch. 
 
Once the plants make it through the first couple weeks, they’ll grow without a hitch. 
 
Step-by-step sowing and growing instructions are in the Planty Gardening app.  

How do you use them?

Harvest Romano Pole Beans when they’re still flat and about 20 cm long: that's when they're tastiest. Cut them off the plant so you don’t damage it. 
 
Always cook your Romano Pole Beans. Don't eat them raw. 
 
The most popular way to eat them is to first cut them into narrow, diagonal strips and boil them briefly. Add to white beans for the famous dish known as “bare bottom in the grass". 
 
Serve as a side dish or add them to salads, stir-fries, and soups.
