(Phaseolus vulgaris) (70 days, fresh shell beans; 85 days, dry bean) Barbunya pole beans are the Turkish version of the borlotto or cranberry bean, likely descendants from the orginal Colombian cranberry bean called Cargamanto. Prized for their excellent taste, Barbunya season is cause for celebration with special dishes. Harvest fresh shell beans at 70 days when the pods are plump with a bright red/white color. Or allow them to mature as dry beans for savory winter meals.
