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:

This bean has been in my family as long as I can remember (I'm 63).. My great grandma called them "POSEY" beans due to the clusters of beautiful red flowers that grew on green vines. Very showy indeed! I now grow them. The hummingbirds love them. They do not like temperatures in the 90s-they'll bloom then drop the flower, no bean pods. I let the seed pods turn brown and brittle on the vines before picking. Most pods have 5-8 large black & pink mottled beans. Shell out and store in cool dry place. I cook them like my mother did. To cook: soak beans over night in cold water, then rinse before cooking. Using fresh water, bring beans to a boil, reduce heat and cook beans until tender approximately 1 hour. When beans are tender salt to taste. Very good!! Every time I cook them what wonderful memories I have of my grandma and mom growing their "posey"beans.

Review:

I live pretty close to the coast where our summers rarely get over 70F so I'm always looking for things that grow well in cool weather. These did beautifully! Our garden is in the front yard where we trellised these up against the side of the house and were constantly getting comments on how beautiful the flowers were. The local bees loved them too! I'll definitely be growing these again.

Review:

July 1st and the beans have reached the top of a 10 foot structure. Lower half covered in flowers, which the hummingbirds love. Soon the runners will flop over the top. Ornamental. Showy!

Review:

OMG I've never seen anything like these runner beans, both Scarlet Runner and Sunset Runner. This is the first time I've tried them, mostly for color to climb my chain link fences and to acquire their seeds. I soaked them overnight and tried to plant them the next morning in Peat Pellets. But they are SO HUGE they would not fit down into the pellet. With the bottom of the bean touching the tray, the top of the bean was exposed and I could not cover them with the Peat Pellet. The sides of the Pellets busted open. I went out to get some potting soil to cover them, but the next morning, (day two), they had all sprouted. I am amazed. At 68 years, its hard to experience anything that shocks or amazes me anymore, but these seeds did. I can hardly wait to get them outside next to my fence and watch them go! Five Stars so far.
