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? 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.

What are the pros? Attracts hummingbirds,

What are the cons? None

Review:

This bean is stunning for the ornamental value. The bean grows very tall and produces an abundance of red flours that hummingbirds love to visit. The green bean is wonderful in paella but the biggest surprise was for me how wonderful the dry bean tastes after some time of cooking. The boiled dry beans are very large and have a unique flavour, great in salads.

What are the pros? Easy To Grow and Beautiful

What are the cons? none

Review:

I am a fairly novice gardener and I still had a great turn out from these last year. They are very pretty and the beans are delish. I am actually planting them to vine on my front porch trellis because they were so pretty. What's better than an ornamental plant that you can eat?
