Aztec Scarlet Runner Bean

A robust annual vine, often exceeding 15 ft. in length that produces foot-long pods filled with black & red speckled beans when mature. Young 4" pods can be used as snap beans if picked just before the beans begin to swell inside the pod. The beans are more tender when sliced French style. Allow pods to dry on the plant for shell beans. A beautiful ornamental vine to climb up your fence or cover tepee posts. Wonderful for children. Scarlet flowers attract hummingbirds. (55 days)
