Scarlet Runner Bean Seeds
With such showy clusters of rich, red, and edible flowers, Scarlet Runner Bean is predominantly used as a flowering screen, vine, or fence cover. But an insider’s tip is that this runner bean has an extremely rich, sweet flavor when picked young, and can be shelled for green or dried beans when pods mature. Grow it either way – for the pretty flowers, or to eat the beans!
