Runner Cannellini - Big and Buttery!
Runner Cannellini beans are very distinct in taste and appearance from regular Cannellini beans. They are still Phaseolus vulgaris, but larger and nuttier than Cannellini.
These are the beans of kings! Chefs and great home cooks from Italy requested friends and family traveling to bring all they could smuggle aboard! Our seed stock is authentic heirloom and the beans are magnificent! They are big, tender and filled with flavor and the most popular bean we grow.
We are sometimes asked about the size, because these are probably twenty percent larger than what is normally seen in stores. They are not tough or bland - just big. Chip says it's the soil - we say thank you, God! They are truly wonderful. If you come by when we are demonstrating our beans and offering samples - this is likely to be one of the beans. One bite is all it takes and you will not want any other Runner Cannellini bean.
Mama mia, this is a good bean!
