Steve Ainsworth from Hillsborough, NH United States
Grows up to 15 ft, Flowers a deep orange/scarlet flower in clusters from just above the vine base all the way to the top. The scarlet runner bean when picked young is a delicious nutty flavored bean that also cans well, especially in a "dilly bean" (pickled). Leave beans on until first mild frost for drying. Beans can be as large as a quarter when dried. As dried beans they keep well. A fine utility bean, but the sheer size makes it better used as a novelty. Pods are dark green, bean dark green, dries to dark purple/black.
