An American heirloom cultivated in the 1750's, Scarlet Runner is named after the plants glowing red flowers. The dried bean's coloring, purple with black mottling, make it a standout. Its dense texture and nutty flavor is best enjoyed with a simple enhancement of butter, garlic and fresh herbs. The runner bean is commonly cultivated in many parts of the world for its edible seeds and immature seed pods which grow to 6–8”. Tags: Type: Pole, Runner, Color: Bi-Colored, Specialty: Heat Resistant, Heritage: Heirloom, Season: Summer.

The common bean originated in the Andes. Foundation of Native American agriculture and part of the Three Sister guild: corn, beans and squash. Beans are legumes and fix nitrogen into the soil. Leaf is occasionally used as a leaf vegetable. Regarding seed born bean disease, soak seeds in 20 percent bleach solution for 15-30 minutes and dry before planting to kill exterior pathogens. Dry seed enough to shatter when banged with a hammer, then freeze for three days to kill weevil eggs. Delicious bean recipes.

Companions All: celery, corn, squash
Bush: cucumbers, strawberries
Lima: locust trees
