What are the cons? None


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.
