Green Romano beans are available during summer months.
Romano beans are a flat snap type pole bean variety that should not be confused with Borlotti AKA Roman beans which are an Italian shelling bean variety. Romano beans can be green, purple or yellow depending on the specific cultivar.
Green Romano beans are broad and flattened in shape, averaging about five inches in length at maturity. The beans have a stringless seam that opens rather easily while still young. The pods cling loosely to a series of about six tiny lime green colored peas. The beans are crisp and fleshy in texture, extremely succulent, packing an assertively sweet punch, leaving little trace of any other flavors.
As its given name suggests, the Romano bean is native to Italy. In fact, it is sometimes referred to generically as an Italian Pole bean. Pole beans are known to yield longer harvests per season than bush bean varieties. Their seasons often stretch into the fall during shorter days and cooler nights, whereas bush bean types will yield abundant crops instantly which has notoriously dubbed bush beans as a bean not just for fresh picking but for canning. Romano beans are harvested for fresh eating, canning and freezing.
