Phaseolus coccineus

Yorkshire and Lancashire


Considered as one of the best flavoured beans available.

Produces red and white flowers with a good crop of medium length tender green 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.
