Dragon Tongue Beans

Romano BeansThis beautiful, old Dutch heirloom variety is good for fresh use or for dried beans (if we let them grow large). The flavour is exceptional raw or cooked!

    In my basket last week, I got seven bags of beans! It was a bit overwhelming. I gave the purple beans away since I grow them in my garden and one of the two yellow beans bags went bad but we managed to eat the other 5 bags. These, the Dragon Tongue beans, were exceptional. In a class by themselves. I parboiled them and finished them in a bit of butter, olive oil and orange juice. Very good.

    Sometimes when we have lots of different types of beans, we share. But not all purple beans are the same – we only grow the very hard to source heirloom variety which has a great flavour!And the dragon are a very rare heirloom as well – so glad you enjoyed them! We love them as well.

    These beans look delicious… do you shell them or eat them whole?

    We pick them young, so the entire pod can be eaten as you receive them. We could let them mature and use them as dried beans and might try some that way this year.
