Runner bean – Scarlet Emperor (Organic)


A heritage variety of vigorous growth and productivity. Harvested young as snap beans or matured, dried and shelled. Scarlet Emperor beans are an old favourite. They are often just grown for their beauty, how great, that they can be eaten as well! Bright red flowers and up to 3m tall it produces masses of smooth-textured long green pods that can be eaten as snap bean (very tasty!). Left to mature, the seeds are purple in colour, sometimes darker, sometimes lighter with black dapples. They make a great drying bean too.
(Approximate seed count – 30)
