Here is the Romano pole beans, Phaseolus vulgaris. These vines come up every year! Romano Pole Beans are also known as "Italian Green Pod Beans", "Italian Flat Beans", or "Italian Pole Beans". It is an old reliable variety that has been around for a long time. Many consider it a classic Italian flat gourmet bean. They are a thick, and meaty, tender, flat and string-less type of bean. Plants can grow 6 to 8 feet tall. They also produce very high yields of crispy crunchy bean pods that have a smooth flavor and get to 8 inches long but flat. For continuous harvest keep beans picked when they are young and most tender. Eat them fresh young or let them mature for drying. Open pollinated 65 to 90 days.

    Planting and Harvesting Tips:
    Start indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost of spring. Transplant outside after the soil has warmed to 65˚ to 75˚F. Sow one inch deep and space 12-18 inches apart in rows 3-4 feet apart. Plants prefer full sun and moist soil with plenty of organic matter.
    Harvest daily with a sharp knife during hot weather — pods taste best when young and grow quickly past the stage of prime eating. Wear gloves and long sleeves for protection from spines.
