Mountaineer Half Runner Bean

1 Review | Write a Review
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.

Good old fashioned bean flavor

What are the pros? Great flavor; few strings.

What are the cons? Bean pods a little short.


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.
