Wrzawska beans have large seeds, a thin germ tegument, and delicate structure and consistency. Their sweet taste makes them a highly valued culinary product.
The unmatched quality of Wrzawska beans results from a specific combination of natural factors (climate and soil) and the skills of local producers who know exactly how to cultivate them. The area where Wrzawska beans are cultivated is rich in high-quality fen soil and a specific microclimate created by the vicinity of two rivers: Vistula and San. The area is warmer than its neighbouring regions and enjoys a long no-frost period, thanks to which the vegetation period is longer. The lowland nature of this area surrounded by uplands results in lower wind intensity, which has a positive effect on the crops due to high vulnerability of bean plants to wind. The above properties of the geographical area and the skills of growers, who know the rules of poling, gradual manual harvesting of beans depending on their ripeness and outdoor drying, yield products with specific characteristics.
Wrzawska beans are manufactured in Tarnobrzeg and Stalowa Wola poviats in Podkarpackie Voivodeship.
