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.

Review:

I got 100% germination from these seeds. They grow quick and if you give them something to grab on to they will take off. Love.

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!

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.
