  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: deep and fertile with reliable moisture

    The long, slender beans of this productive scarlet-flowered variety are slow to develop seeds, meaning pods can stay on the plant for longer before they become tough giving you more time to pick them. The stringless dark green pods grow to around 30cm long and have an excellent flavour: harvest young to enjoy them at their most tender. The flowers are edible too and make a colourful garnish.

  • Growing Instructions: Choose a spot in full sun with the richest soil you can provide: dig in plenty of well-rotted organic matter before planting. From late spring sow seeds direct 5cm deep and about 20cm apart and support with sturdy hazel bean poles. Protect seedlings from slugs and squash blackfly as soon as they appear on shoot tips. Runner beans make very beautiful and productive annual climbers in the ornamental garden too: grow on fences or up wigwams in the flower borders.

  • Sow: April-June

  • Harvest: July-October

  • Approximate quantity: 45 seeds.
