A mix of Scarlet Runner Beans and Painted Lady Beans, THESE GROW HUGE HEAVY BEAN TRELLISES. In Hurricane Irene this ended up torn over onto the ground by the storm, but we simply dried the beans and saved them.
Bright Red flowers or Red & White flowers. Bees, Hummingbirds & Kids love these!
Beautiful beans, they stay tender up to huge sizes. A broad Roma-style pod and if the soil is fertile they can grow ten inches long and stay tasty and edible. We grow these everywhere in every soil since 2010 and they always do a something-something for us.
You can eat them at every stage and the leaves can be boiled up as greens in lean times, too. We just grow them and save the seed and grow them again, easy and ornamental.
They make a big mess of green snap beans or they make a powerfully huge Dry bean in our pantry. Farmer Ama makes incredible pressure-canned Pork and Beans with these.
