Classic Italian romano bean on easy-to-pick bush plants. Beautiful flat green pods are filled with robust flavor.
A favorite in Italy, these flat and wide snap beans aren't available in most grocery stores. Once you taste their delicious nutty flavor you'll wish you could grow them year round. The 4"–5" long pods are slow to develop fiber and seeds so they're nice and tender. 'Roma II' is delicious eaten fresh, and is an excellent variety for freezing or canning. Disease resistant.
Variety Info4"–5" wide and flat, medium green, stringless pods. Disease resistant to bean common mosaic virus (NY15) and rust.
Not recommended; bean seedlings are sensitive to root disturbance.
RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 65°F, ideally 70°–85°F. Successive Sowings: Every 7 to 14 days up to 80 days before your average first fall frost date. NOTE: In very hot summer areas, skip sowing as high heat approaches; temperatures consistently above 90°F will prevent beans from forming.
