Aunt Ada's Italian Beans

55-60 days. HEIRLOOM "This seed came to Colorado from Italy with the Botanelli family circa 1900. 6 ft. vines with a prolific set of small 3 in. flattened pods. In summer, we can hardly let a meal go by without including this delectable green bean. The taste is best if picked when the outline of the beans are bulging in the green pod, and steamed about 15 to 20 minutes; it's like a small buttery snap lima bean. When we shared this variety with friends, they said it was the best green bean they'd ever eaten!!! The unusual square brown seeds can also be used as soup beans."
