Dwarf Bean Cannellini




Phaseolus vulgaris


Italian white kidney bean made famous in Minestrone soup and often found canned. The beans taste mildly nutty, a creamy smooth texture that stays firm and whole when cooked slowly. The large plants are very productive with 15cm plump pods that can be harvested in 80 days when they turn a yellowish-green and the beans are large and greenish-white. It can be used as a snap bean or for fresh and dry beans.

Bush beans should be planted about 2″ deep, about 4″ apart in rows.
Pole beans need the support of a trellis at least 6′ high. It can be a fence, strings, a net, pole tipis. If using a pole, plant 4-6 beans around the leg of each pole. On a trellis? About every 4″ down the row.
When using the beans as snap beans, be sure you harvest as soon as the first beans are plump but before the seed bulges the pods.
