"Silver Cloud is an improved white cannellini with higher yields, greater disease resistance and an upright bush habit. Also known as fagioli, haricot blanc or white kidney, cannellini are prized as cooking beans for their smooth, meaty texture and a dense, nutty flavor. Often used in soups, this is the classic Minestrone bean. Silver Cloud was bred by Washington State University as an improvement over the much loved heirloom. Excellent as either a shelling or a dry bean. Tolerant to bean rust." High Mowing Seed
