Scarlet Runner Bean

 (Phaseolus coccineus)


15 seeds


The scarlet runner is also known as Seven Year Bean as it re-sprouts from its roots if they are left undisturbed. The bean is an old standard variety, a vigorous climber, with attractive scarlet flowers. The black and purple seeds are used to make bean jewellery. This bean originated in the South American highlands and is suited to cooler climates. The large quality pods can be eaten whole or just the beans. The beans can be used fresh or as dried beans. The scarlet runner is widely grown for its attractive flowers by people who would never think of eating it. 65 days.


I cannot send these seeds to Tasmania due to quarantine restrictions.


Western Australia customers, please see shipping details below.


Growing Instructions


Sow 5cm deep, spacing seeds 15cm apart. Grow in double rows 30cm apart. Keep the roots cool and weed free; a mulch of garden compost, peat or straw will help considerably. Water freely, particularly in dry weather. You may find that if night temperatures are very warm, the plants have difficulty setting beans - in this case, we advise you lightly spray the flowers and plants with water once the sun goes off the plants.


Please check my eBay store and other listings for a wide selection of exotic and hard to find vegetables.


If you have any special requests I can create one off seed collections to suit your needs. Please do not hesitate to send me a message.

Australia customers

$2.20 postage for any number of seeds bought in a single order. Orders over $60 are sent registered post at an additional cost of $3.20. Seeds will be sent in padded bags to protect them from damage in the post.


Western Australia Customers

There is a $2.00 per order handling fee on all orders to WA to cover the costs of the additional paperwork required by WA Quarantine. Please request a total for your order BEFORE paying for your seeds as this fee is not added automatically.


International customers

$4.95 postage for any number of seeds bought in a single order. Seeds will be sent in clear plastic bags and will be labelled with the seeds botanical name to aid in any quarantine inspections. This meets the needs for entry into most countries. However, I recommend that you check with your own countries quarantine requirements to ensure that the seeds are permitted entry into your country. I will not take responsibility for any seeds confiscated by your quarantine. If any other requirements are needed for importation, email me before purchasing the seeds and I will do my best to help you if I can.
