1024-LO Phaseolus vulgaris

(Bush— DRY) 80 days to dry stage.

We’ve been working on this one for a while! Andrea went all the way to Italy to get seeds with a New England connection. In 2007 at Terra Madre in Turin, 10 seeds were passed to her at a seed exchange. She has grown them out ever since. Beautiful ruby-and-gold swirls with a white background on plump, oval beans. Dries down quickly; very easy for hand threshing.

The second image at right is the Maine Sunset bean once cooked, in a light cream sauce.
