Mountaineer Half Runner Bean

Half-runner, 55 days. (Also called Old Dutch Half Runner) Tender snap bean is a longtime Southern favorite! Plants are amazingly productive, although they reach only 24-36 inches, and may be grown without trellising. For snaps the pods should be picked at about 4 inches in length, at which size they usually contain very few strings; excellent for canning and freezing! Flavor is rich and very “beany.” Or use the plump, snow-white beans shelled or dried. This variety originated in Germany and was carried into the Dutch Fork region of South Carolina by early settlers.

What are the pros? Great flavor; few strings.

What are the cons? Bean pods a little short.

Review:

Closest I've found to old fashioned white half runner flavor without getting the white half runner strings. Good germination. The plants didn't need staking and they continued production for a long period. Had problems with Mexican bean beetles, but that's not really the bean's fault! Am a repeat buyer for this bean.
