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? Big Meaty Beans

What are the cons? Prolific, but I want more!!

Review:

LOVE this bean!! I planted this bean two years in a row so far and plan to grow them forever. They are prolific in my sometimes shady corner of the garden, growing on the fence. They are a tangled jungle of gorgeous bright red flowers. The dry beans are the best part. I pick them in the fall after a frost so they're easier to find and mostly dried out (although there are always some that are still green). They are huge and meaty and delicious! I make my own frozen burritos and use a mix of home grown beans (black, kidney and pinto) and these are my favorite....when I get a bite with a big meaty scarlett runner bean in it, it's awesome! I highly recommend!

What are the pros? flowers, taste

What are the cons? finicky

Review:

I grew these in 2015 & 2016. The first year was better. The truth is, my season is short-ish and my soil is poor, despite amendments. In 2015 the flowers were more prolific and drew humming birds. I was able to harvest about 2 cups of dried beans, which are large and beautiful! I saved some for replanting and used the rest in soups (soak a handful over night, cook, then add to soup). Delicious! Taste is sort of like a kidney bean. In 2016 I planted them in a space that's more gravelly, so maybe they didn't like that. We also had a good stretch of heat, and they seemed to dry up then. I got a handful of dried beens. I'll plant again for the humming birds, but will try another variety with a shorter season for the crop.

What are the pros? Pretty flowers,lush foliage

What are the cons? Never got a chance to try them

Review:

Planted mine in March 2016,in the ground and a few in 5 gallon buckets.The ones in the container grew horribly.Never flowered,foliage was pale and sickly,so after a while,just gave up.Saw no growth,from the ones planted in the ground at all,so figured the soil was bad.We rented a home and was suppose to have property/lawn maintenance provided for the summer.They came once then never again,so the backyard became WAY over grown.I was happily surprised when I noticed through all the 5 to 6 feet tall weeds along the fence line,small clusters of tiny red flowers peeked through, in the middle of August.They had little pods and found about 3 pods that were full grown.But alas,we moved down to South Carolina at the end of September so I have no idea how they are doing.Being perennials,I hope they continue to flourish and become a nuisance to who ever moves in forever,lol!!!!

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... ??
