Ah the Pelligrini bean, this bean has a rich history in the Seattle area where I was born and raised. This seed comes from stock that was gifted to me by a good friend shortly after I turned 21 when I was just dipping my toes into the world of gardening. Arguably my first introduction into heirloom seed culture, I will never forget this bean, and I grow it every year religiously. An Italian heirloom brought to the PNW in the early 1900s and introduced to the world by Seattle area food legend Angelo Pelligrini who called them "Monachine" (mohna-kee-nay) or little nuns. Pole habit, this bean is best eaten cooked as a shelly or dry bean. Delicate flavor, great texture, and rich history make this bean worth growing for a multitude of reasons. Angelo always used to sow the beans on May 15th and we suggest you do the same as they are a bit longer to mature than other beans in this climate, but they are well worth the wait!
