Runner beans are our absolute favorite perennial bean. If a magical bean truly existed, the runner bean was its inspiration. These beans require so little and give so much. And the best part is the more you pick them, the more they produce!
There are so many ways to enjoy these magical plants. You can enjoy their beautiful red or white flowers in your salad. You can cook the young immature pods and eat them as delicious green beans. You can eat the beans when they are still soft like shell beans, and you can dry them fully and store them for the rest of the year. Even the roots are edible! Runner bean burritos are a family favorite around here!
Did we mention that they're GORGEOUS? Runner beans are so beautiful that they are used as an ornamental. The hummingbirds love to dance among their beautiful flowers and they will happily scramble up any support you give them, topping out at about 10 feet.
We've collected rare runner bean varieties from around the world and have continued to select for perennial nature, amazing colors, and rich, savory taste. You'll receive a blend of colors from our collection and can enjoy the rich variety of colors of beans and blossoms. Once you taste our runner beans, you'll forget that any other bean ever existed.
