Runner bean Borlotto Lingua Du Fuoco Seeds
Info: Borlotto Lingua Du Fuoco is a traditional, very old, Italian bean variety. It is an early-middle-ripe bean with strong, very productive plants. The pods in their red-yellow striped color become 15 cm long and contain 5-6 large beans. The cream-colored, red marbled beans are particularly suitable for hearty soups or vegetable stews.
Sowing & cultivation: The sowing should be about 3 cm deep. Press seeds and cover with soil. For row sowing the distance shoould be 40 cm with a grain spacing of 6 - 8 cm. When sown as a pit sowing, the distances are 30cm at 5-7 seeds per planting site. Sow the beans in humus-rich, well-drained garden soil in a warm, sheltered, sunny to partially shaded place with even moisture. If necessary, separate. The stability of the plants is improved by sowing in clumps.
