This plant has giant fruits
Outstanding quality runner bean producing good length pods (35cm) of uniform shape and size from red flowers. Stringless with excellent texture and taste.
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 35cm 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.
