Loved by Italian gardeners for generations, Hilda Romano pole bean seeds produce flat pods, with no strings, but great flavour. This bean is one of the first to produce in the summer and keeps going until frost if you keep it picked. It needs a strong support, but rewards you with an incredible harvest. Eat the beans fresh as green beans, or let them mature and save the seeds. Pods to 23cm (9") long. Hilda Romano pole beans are Bean Common Mosaic Virus (BCMV) resistant.
This is a similar bean to Helda, bred in southern Europe, but Hilda produces a slightly longer bean that stays tender for longer as the pods mature.
