An organic heritage variety traditionally only found in Milan and Lombardy, Nero Milano is very dark skinned, almost black in colour, and is sometimes called ‘Black Beauty’. Mid-early, its open bush habit allows for easy picking and they crop readily, best enjoyed young.


Franchi, established in 1783, is the oldest family-run seed company in the world. It specialises in endangered and heritage vegetable varieties, inspiring growers to support biodiversity by planting something slightly different from the mainstream.
