Bean, Pole Runner, 'Scarlet Emperor'

((P. coccineus) This is a real dandy of a runner bean, vigorously growing 8-10’ and bearing a profusion of showy bright red blossoms loved by butterflies and hummingbirds. Our son Rowan has grown many an “Emperor” tepee and they are a stunning sight to behold! Often grown just as an ornamental, the flowers are followed by long and slightly fuzzy green beans that, when picked young, are delicious with a rich nutty flavor. Immature bean seeds can be eaten as shelly beans, while mature dry beans are eaten like lima or kidney. Very productive over an extended period. Giant mottled purple/black seeds look like magic beans from Jack and the Beanstalk. Who knows where they’ll take you if you start climbing…70 days. UO
