Runner beans are a different species to common (French) beans and have some unique characteristics. Frost tender perennial but normally grown as an annual. Attractive fast growing vine with lush green foliage and sprays of scarlet red flowers. Plants produce masses of long, flat, green beans that grow to around 20cm. Beans can be eaten raw when very young and tender, cooked like a common bean when larger or left to mature and used as a dried bean. Young beans have a deliciously sweet and rich flavour. Fast growing and heavy cropping. Very attractive plant; is often grown as an ornamental. Does best in cooler climates. Also known as Seven Year Bean, Scarlet Runner Beans and Multiflora Bean.

Runner Bean- Scarlet Emperor



TheSeedCollection Response
This is a common pollination issue. Please see are article on Runner Beans here: https://www.theseedcollection.com.au/Scarlet-Runner-Beans-How-to-Grow-from-Seed-to-Harvest
The plant itself grows very healthy, but no beans could be harvested from it.

Goodlooking plant, not a favourite of the bees

This grew beautifully, and I loved the flowers. However, our bees ignored it, meaning no pollination and no beans.
