This medium-sized beige bush bean comes from the town of Quarto d’Altino about halfway between Venice and Treviso where it is traditionally used for soups and pasta e fagioli. A gift from our friends Leila and Chandler of Hayshaker Farm, it seemed very much at home in our climate which shares much in common with its place of origin in the Veneto. Plants were very healthy and high yielding, one of the last we seeded in the spring yet one of the first to come out in the fall. Be sure to serve with radicchio so it doesn’t get too homesick. Recognized as a Slow Food producers presidium.
