Some kids (and some adults) have no idea where shell beans come from. These Italian Rose heirloom beans are stunning on the vine and the beautiful pods are packed with speckled beans. Rose speckled with white. White speckled with rose. Almost too beautiful to eat. They are also early and high-yielding.

Tips for growing great beans.
