McKenzie Seed – Bean Scarlet Runner (Pole)


Scarlet Runner Beans are very unique. They feature brilliant scarlet flowers that contrast attractively against the plant’s dark green foliage. The vines climb 2-3 m (6-10”), attract hummingbirds to the garden, and provide an extremely high yield of delicious 20-25 cm ( 8-10″) snap beans.



Plant Type: Vegetable

Flavor: Creamy texture with a savory, very nutty, almost meaty flavor

Preparation Ideas: Rinse beans under water. Dry and cut off both ends of beans. Snip beans into 1″ pieces. Place beans into large frying pan and add enough water to cover beans. Bring water to boil. Reduce heat, cover the pan and simmer beans until fork tender. Drain beans and add butter, salt and pepper and any other spices you desire.

Days to Germination: 6 to 14 days

Days to Maturity: 64 to 70 days

Planting Depth: 2.5 cm (1″)

Growing Height: 2-3 m (6-10′)

Instructions: Sow seeds when the soil is warm and all danger of frost is past. Pick early and often to encourage production. Sow every 2 weeks until 8 weeks before fall frost.

Suggestions: Avoid working around beans when wet; this may spread diseases. When weeding, hoe gently because beans are shallow-rooted. Mulch plants only after thinning.
