Barlotto Lingua Di Fuoco 2 French Bean Seeds
Barlotto Lingua di Fuoco is a mid-early climbing French bean that produces long, red-mottled pods filled with cream-colored, red-splashed beans. The beans are a great, both as green pod beans (I love eating them fresh from the stalk) and as a dry bean. No matter what the use, the beans have an excellent flavour.
