Sunset Runner Bean (65 Days)

Vining up and around while boasting warm peachy-rose blossoms and like other runner beans, attractive to pollinators. An interest fact about runner beans is that they twine clockwise where pole beans go counter clockwise. Use as a fresh vegetable with its edible flowers and pods or as an ornamental climber.  25 seeds

 

PLANTING:

Germination  time- 4-10 Days

Outside- Bush type: 1” deep and 4-6” apart with soil temperatures above 60 degrees and after the last frost. Planting under 60 degrees results in poor germination. Pole type: Plant 1” deep and 3- 4” apart for trellis/pole growth. Drying type: 1” deep and 5-6” apart. Leave beans on the plant until the leaves are falling and pods are dry and withered

Harvest- Before the seeds bulge and beans snap easily. Pick continually to prolong production.

Tips- Water well during hot dry period and do not over fertilize which results in a surplus of foliage and low, delayed pod growth. Adding inoculant at planting time aids in a larger harvest and more robust plants. Plant seeds every 2-3 weeks for continual harvest throughout the summer.
