Scarlet Runner Bean Seeds


Scarlet Runner Bean Seeds. This Native American heirloom bean grows on long healthy vines that reach over 10' tall.  This plant is an edible ornamental. The vines are covered with clusters of Scarlet Red Flowers that attract large amounts of birds and butterflies. They can be used as a snap bean, shell bean or dry bean.  The green pods are edible whole but best when harvested at 4" - 8" as they tend to become fibrous as they mature.  The beans can be cooked fresh or as dried beans. Cook beans thoroughly. Scarlet Runner Beans are a purple rose colored with black mottling. Flowers can be eaten fresh, added to salads they impart a beany flavor. Can be a perennial plant as it grows differently than other bean varieties and produces a tuberous root. The starchy roots can be prepared and eaten as you would Jerusalem Artichokes.  For dry beans, pods are ready to pick when they are mature and dried down.  80 days until full maturity for dry bean.  Packet contains approximately 25 seeds grown naturally with love and care.  Happy Planting!  We have a wide variety of Heirloom Vegetable, Herb, and Flower Seeds.  With all of our seeds: Your first packet ships for $2.50.  All additional packets ship free.  So your total shipping on a seed order is $2.50 no matter how many packets you order.
