One of the most fascinating heirloom beans. Begins with having young edible stringless pods transforming into large-sized beans with a pinkish-red flame pattern intensifying as the plant ages. Sizable beans have a creamy, mild flavor. Absorb added flavors well. They can be used fresh shelled, canned, frozen, or dried for later use. Originally collected from the tip of South America, Tierra del Fuego; then sent onward to Italy. 6-7” pods, bush type. (60 days green, 75 days shelled, days 95 dried)
