Beans - Scarlet Runner - Phaseolus coccineus
Annual Pole. Heirloom. Plant this scarlet flowering vine and stand back. Growing at least 6'-8' in a season, this productive vine produces green snap beans, and the flowers attract hummingbirds if you don't eat them first. Keep picking the delicious bean pods all summer long to promote more flowers. For dried beans, pick mature pods.
Soil and Water: Legumes like well-drained soil rich in organic matter and a moderate amount of nutrients. Water lightly at planting, medium at flowering, and heavily throughout harvest time. Avoid overhead watering which can promote disease.
Planting and Growing: This vine needs a good trellis for its vigorous summer show. Start indoors in short-season climates, or seed directly once soils have reached at least 65°F, preferably after the last frost.
Harvesting and Storage: Pick continually to keep the crop coming. Harvest pods before the bean seeds inside make the pod fat.
Did You Know? The heart-shaped leaves are also known as cordate.
