aka White Kidney Bean

Pole bean

The Italian Heirloom bean that has been treasured for years made its way to America in the early 1800s. 

Cannellini beans are preferred by chefs for their smooth, rich and nutty flavor. 

The texture is potato-like, starchy and smooth. 

Cannellini beans are used as a dry shell bean and tend to run, so a sturdy support will increase production.

Does well in cool weather.

Planting Tips for Heirloom Beans:

50-60 days for green, 100+ days for dry beans. Not cold tolerant, beans need warm soil of 65° or higher. Grow best in full sun with well watered soil. Regular harvesting of the young pods will ensure a greater yield. Boost yields and germination by adding inoculants.

Avoid planting in soil that stays wet.  Heirloom bean diseases thrive in wet conditions, and the roots may not get enough oxygen.

Heirloom beans like soil that is slightly acid, about 6.5.  This can be achieved by adding mulched pine needles, peat moss or sulfur. 

Try wide row growing for bush beans.  Make your heirloom bean rows three across instead of just one.  Three wide is perfect because most people can reach across that width.  You can grow 3 times the amount of heirloom beans in the same space, you reduce the amount of area for weeds, and you'll save on water.
