Last yesr, we planted 3 varieties of pole beans from you, Supermarconi, Meraviglia di Venezia and Smeraldo. This year it will be only Smeraldo. It outperformed the others by MILES, more beans, larger beans, better flavor, tender even at 10”, kept producing longer. I can’t praise this variety too highly! I love romano beans and frequently just go into the garden and eat them raw. Smeraldo is the best variety, hands down, cooked or raw. Thank you so much for carrying it!!!

This is the first time I've grown Smeraldo. They're even better than advertised. First planting failed completely, but the weather here in the central Oregon high desert has been a real challenge this year. Frost until June followed quickly by a 100+ degree heat dome for weeks. So I replanted after a few weeks and the vines are layering well above our 7 foot arbor in mid-August. 8 to 9 inch tender delicious pods are hanging everywhere. Definitely will be my go-to planting in the future. Thanks for offering them!

These beans are the best! I just finished harvesting the first planting. The flat beans were tender and delicious sauteed in butter and garlic!
