Description

This early-bearing, bush Roma variety is an old Italian favorite, reselected for great taste and improved yields. The vigorous 2' bush plants bear heavy harvests of flat, wide, 5" long green stringless pods with a distinctively rich "beany" flavor. They are scrumptious just steamed with a little butter or use them in your own freshly-made minestrone soup, marinated for antipasto or in any green bean recipe. You'll find their full, meaty flavor is special and satisfying.

While Renee's Garden seeds are not all certified organic, they do not sell treated or GMO seeds and have signed the "Safe Seed Pledge.”

Planting & Care

Planting: In the Spring, once weather is warm and settled and night temperatures stay securely above 55°F (13°C), plant seeds in well-worked, fertile soil in full sun. Poke seeds in 1" deep and 4" apart in rows 1-1/2' to 2' apart. Make several sowings 2 weeks apart until the end of June to provide continued harvests.

Growing: Tender, crispy garden beans are an easy, reliable crop to grow, but don't plant seeds too early as cold conditions prevent good germination. If first sowing comes up unevenly, replant right away; new seedlings will catch up quickly. Birds are often attracted to young bean seedlings, so watch carefully and protect with netting or floating row covers if necessary. Avoid cultivating plants or picking pods when plants are wet.

Harvest & Use: Pick these rich-tasting, full-flavored Italian specialty beans often for fresh snap beans by harvesting before the beans well in the pods. The more you pick, the more the plants will produce. Roma Improved also freezes well. If you wait until harvest and the pods mature so the beans swell you can use Roma Improved as green shelling beans. A great variety to grow where summers are especially hot.
