It continues to be the finest Romano we've ever trialed. Musica remains very tender and delicious even when it reaches its largest size. White seeds.

Can't say enough good things about this bean. Planted end of April, vines took off and produced like crazy for six months. Delicious Romano flavor, huge pods, still tender even when starting to bulge, and those I missed and left hanging made nice shelling beans. Earned a permanent place in my garden.
