This is the large plump red rooster bean that is pinkish-brown in colour with reddish-brown streaks. Borlotti beans are widely used in Italian cooking and have a sweetish flavour with a smooth creamy texture. They work well in salads and casseroles. Young pods are really great when stir-fry. These beautiful red pods will definitely add some colour in your dish and your kids will love them. This variety produces mottled red pods about 13cm in length. It is resistant to a lot of diseases and very productive. Mainly used as a dried bean for soups and stews or Mexican cuisine but can also be used fresh as with other beans. Beans are best picked frequently and will continue to flower of a long period for an extended harvest. This bean is a dwarf variety so doesn't need anything to climb on.
