Scarlet Runner Bean

$3.95

Phaseolus coccineus

Scarlet Runner Beans are big climbers with large pods and gigantic beans! Their vines are decorated with striking bright scarlet flowers that attract hummingbirds, hummingbird moths and bees. This Colorado-adapted landrace is drought tolerant and so easy to grow. Kids love shelling them from their huge pods. Eaten mostly as a dry bean but a few pods or raw beans can be eaten young while still tender. Many colors and patterns make shelling these beans a treasure hunt!

Planting Instructions: Sow Scarlet Runner Bean seeds directly in the ground 4" deep, 5-6" apart in spring after all danger of frost has passed. Keep moist until germinated. Plant along a tall fence or trellis.

Seed Saving Instructions: Allow pods to fully dry on the vine. Pick dried pods into a bin and crush to dislodge beans. Store beans in a paper or mesh bag to ensure they dry fully and remain dry.

Approx 18 Scarlet Runner Bean seeds per packet.
