Description
Cannellini, also known as white kidney beans, are as easy to grow as they are to cook, and the only requirement is a sunny patch of ground. Cannellini beans  are popular in Italian cuisine, particularly Tuscan dishes. They are creamy-white, with a puffy texture and a mild flavour when cooked. When uncooked, cannellini beans are kidney-shaped and have a robust seed coat.

Grow Notes
Bush beans, also called dwarf beans, grow as bushes so staking them is optional.

Sow directly into a rich soil and keep mulched to improve water retention. When sowing do not allow soil to get too wet as beans can rot.

Pick regularly to encourage more growth. Pods are best eaten when young and tender. Let pods fully mature if growing for dried beans.

Sow
Sow direct at 20mm depth spaced 30cm apart in Spring or Summer. Rows should be spaced 60cm apart and be in full sun, with well-drained soil.

Keep soil moist but never wet or dry.

Germination
6-12 days at 21-31°C

Maturity
90 -100 days to maturity, Annual plant.
