Phaseolus coccineus

The Czar

Description

White flowers and long tender pods which contain white seeds.

Very tasty fresh and the dry beans can be stored and boiled just like butter beans.

Harvesting seed

If your runner bean pods are not completely dry before the first frost, pull the plants up and dry them further indoors.

When the runner bean pods are completely dry, break them open to release the seeds. Separate the seeds from the chaff. If you are saving a large number of runner bean seeds, you can thresh and winnow the pods to separate the seeds and chaff.
