An ancient heirloom runner bean dating as far back as the mid-1600s and first recorded by German botanist Michael Titus in his Catalogues Plantarum. This rare runner bean produces masses of gorgeous blooms ranging in color from tangerine to cherry red, making this edible ornamental pole bean irresistible to hummingbirds! Pods are much shorter than other runner beans; immature pods can be eaten just like sugar snap peas. The stout pods yield just 2-3 beans per shell. Pretty plump beans that change from pink to purple, and then to a pure ebony-black. Fantastic used like a kidney bean, cooking down to a creamy texture.

Review:

These have been a beautiful addition to our garden. The bright orange flowers are beautiful. The beans are on a trellis and have grown to the top. We live in Colorado where the growing season is a little later and yet they have done quite well. They have large pods and some are starting to dry and the big dark beans are beautiful. Just about ready to try using them as lima beans.

Review:

We grow many types of beans. These are the only ones that were nearly destroyed by flea beetles. They never grew more than 12” tall, with NO bean pods. Most of the plants died before even blooming. I suspect they are not suited to the Potomac Highlands, since all other beans thrive here.
