What are the pros? Unique, tasty, colour
What are the cons? Pests at start, late producer
Planted direct in May 5b zone. More than usual rain in our normally dry area this year and mine were chewed to skeletons when young but the scarlet runners were untouched! They struggled the whole summer with slow growth and smaller chewed leaves but come late August, I saw the first beans which got me excited. They have a few pretty purple flowers and the wasps are tending to them now. I enjoyed them in stir fry where they keep a nice crunch and colour. Have 9' net lattice against south facing wall- they will get to the top and beyond if healthy. I'll try again next year. Worth growing- they are unique and you only need a few for a side dish!
