80 days. Used by native Americans, large, beautiful, vigorous vines grow over 10’. Flowers are very ornamental, in clusters of the brightest scarlet. Good for snap, shell or dry beans. The huge seeds are very colorful, violet-purple mottled in black. These beans like fairly cool weather.

What are the pros? Color, bee attracting, flavor

What are the cons? slow grower, temp finicky

Review:

Beautiful blossoms on these once they take off in late summer, early fall. They need the larger bees to pollinate them, so won't get any pods forming until August where I'm at. They do grow better in cooler temps, so i had to wait longer than most beans to get mature dry beans on them. Flavor is great for baked beans dish.

What are the pros? One of my all time favorites.

What are the cons? When they're all gone :-)

Review:

Amongst my all time favorites- prolific, beautiful in bloom, and soo very, very good to eat; early, as "snap" beans, for tasty cooking at maturity, and, a nice dried bean... ??

What are the pros? Beautiful vine and red flowers

What are the cons? Doesn't set beans in heat

Review:

I tried growing these during a year of record setting heat and drought, so they didn't set beans for me. I was able to make some summer salads from the flowers themselves. They have a lovely green bean flavor. I'm going to try growing them again in our front yard. If the plants can make it through a summer then I'll hope for a fall harvest of dried beans. If not, they'll make a beautiful early summer flower in our landscape and on our plates.

What are the pros? Great soup and chilli bean,

What are the cons? doesn't like hot weather

Review:

This year started out well then came hot weather, flowers made up for not setting many beans. late in August made up for it and had excellent crop. Over 1300 dried beans and for first time tried pods for snap beans and had many meals of the best flavored beans I have ever grown.

What are the pros? Showy plants on tall teepee

What are the cons? Not prolific

Review:

The scarlet runner bean is a dramatic plant that grows on 7 foot tall pole teepees in my garden. We let the pods ripen in 2014 and ate the beans and saved some for seeds for the 2015 season. The huge beans are dark purple and black. They cook up to a tan color. The flavor is excellent. I get a lot of foliage and pretty scarlet flowers. Alas, there are not very many pods. I will grow again for the dramatic look in my garden and a few good bean meals.
