Lamon borlotti bean seeds grow into white beans with pink, red flecks. Lamon borlotti beans are famous throughout Italy for their excellent flavour, and generous yield.

Sow lamon borlotti bean seeds in April and June and they will be ready to harvest after around 75 days. Grow the beans on poles placing 4-5 seeds around the base of a pole or alternatively on a tripod or trellis. The plant will grow to 180-190cm tall and each pod will yield 6 or 7 beans.

Pick the pods when they are plump and have turned a strong red/white colour. Cook the beans in boiling water for 30 minutes or alternatively freeze them for use later in winter stews, minestrone and casseroles. Lamon borlotti beans are used in the popular Italian peasant dish ‘Pasta e Fagioli’ and can also be served on bruschetta with parsley, lemon, garlic, chilli and parmesan.
