BEAN 'Scarlet Emperor (Runner)' - 15 Heirloom Seeds
It’s an annual plant. These showy and ornamental and edible pole-type beans carry masses of bright scarlet flowers in slender clusters over a long summer and autumn season.
Hummingbirds love them! The flowers are followed by dark green, flattened pods that are quite tasty when young. Older pods can be shelled and the seeds prepared like green lima beans.
Tolerates part shade and cool conditions better than other beans - in fact flowering is heaviest in areas without hot, dry summers. In hot climates they will flower quite nicely in the late summer and fall.
Runner Beans are terrific for providing quick shade on porches or for covering arbors, fences or outbuildings.
Scarlet Emperor produces long and tasty pods from very attractive edible red flowers. Runner beans are from a different botanical family to common or French beans. This is why they have a unique texture and taste.
