HEIRLOOM Rare and unusual, we first fell in love with this bean as a handful of seeds: rich mocha brown and chocolate-speckled silver to black-spotted lavender cream to glossy jet black. The tall, vigorous vines have huge heart-shaped leaves and when they bloom we again swoon.

Organic Chocolate Runner Pole Dry Bean HEIRLOOM Rare and unusual, we first fell in love with this bean as a handful of seeds: rich mocha brown and chocolate-speckled silver to black-spotted lavender cream to glossy jet black. The tall, vigorous vines have huge heart-shaped leaves and when they bloom we again swoon: each flower is both scarlet and rose, attracting butterflies and hummingbirds to their glory. The small snap beans (4 inches or less) are tender and sweet but quickly turn fibrous as they swell to 8+ inch pods full of beautiful dry beans. What do we do with our dry beans? We eat some, we make splendid necklaces with little friends and we save plenty to give to friends and replant ourselves for next season.

Reviewer: Wayne Youngblood from Prairie du Sac, WI United States  
Had a bit of trouble getting them started , as the squirrels kept wanting to eat the seeds, but once established they took off and provided lovely runners with plenty of attractive blossoms and beans.

Prolific January 8, 2019
Reviewer: Peter Scheid from Prattsburgh, NY United States  
First year growing pole dry beans. Despite a less than ideal growing season, these germinated very well and produced a lot of beans.  Frequent visits by hummingbirds in my garden was an added bonus.  These grow really high. My 6' trellis was not high enough.

Poor Production... January 5, 2019
Reviewer: Michele Brodbeck from Bartlett, IL United States  
We planted these in my kids' gardens to attract some humming birds.  They simply did not take off.  I have NEVER grown runner beans and I suspect that this is user error.  They may have gotten too much sun as I read they like cooler temps than other beans.  I am going to try again this next season.
