Scarlet Runner Bean

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? gorgeous,prolific, EZ growth,

What are the cons? none

Review:

Planted these when local CSA had flocks of hummers attracted to these vines & their zinnias. Sure enough, attracted'em to our yard. Long vines, traveled anywhere, some too high for me to reach for harvesting! Tasty creamy beans were a perk!

What are the pros? Vigor, beauty, ease

What are the cons? Rough texture

Review:

These took a bit of time to really take off. I think I had a problem with slugs that lead me to reseeding some. Once they took off, there was no stopping them. For ease of harvesting, grow on trellises or heavy duty poles in a single row, not in pyramids or multiple rows. Even at six inches long, the skins are rough and turned the kids off for eating as a green bean. The flavor and texture otherwise are good. Because I have other beans and other veggies to fill up on, we are saving these now for dried beans instead of fresh. I may still grow them next year as a fresh bean, as they are so very productive and vigorous.

What are the pros? Regrow from root

What are the cons? none

Review:

Yes, this been will regrow the following spring from "root" in zone 8. I was so surprised, it is now 3 years since I planted. Beans reliably produce until frost, usually in October. Great bean for young children to grow, I call them magic beans. If growing tall is a problem, stake them with pole sideways like a hitching post, keeping them an acceptable height for a P-Patch garden.

Review:

I planted some for my fall garden here in Tennessee at 2000 feet since I had read they didn't do well in the heat anyway. They produced pretty well and the flavor is wonderful. The pods are thick and meaty and the best flavored green bean I've eaten. I'm growing them again this year and will devote more space than trying them last year.

Review:

I planted these seeds in late spring here in Colorado not really knowing what to expect. They grew beautiful long leafy green vines with little red flowers, however they only produced 2 beans. I left them grow all through summer, as the temperatures cooled off this fall these started to grow strongly again. Now with temps in the high 40's-50's at night and 70's to low 80's during the day they are producing loads of beans. I wasn't really sure what to do with the beans(I dried the first couple) but my husband just decided to eat one off the vine and I was amazed at the flavor; tender and sweet. I think we will eat them like any old green bean. These will be a regular in my garden!
