‘Furano’ Bean From Syngenta Flowers

'Furano' Bean From Syngenta Flowers

Syngenta Flowers is taking a slightly different direction with edibles for the greenhouse market. Its relationship with vegetable breeder Syngenta/Rogers has made it possible to focus less on ornamental crops for the patio and more on traditional backyard vegetable garden varieties in retail-ready programs. Furano is a Romano-type flat bean with exceptional eating quality and an upright bush habit for easy consumer harvesting. It is widely adapted to most conditions.
