I’ve been very pleased with my Sunset Runner Bean Vine this summer. The vine sprouts easily, grows quickly, and is soon exhibiting lovely snapdragon-like clusters of flowers. The spent flowers develop into pods, and the pods develop beautiful black seeds with purple blotches. I purchased these seeds from one of my favorite seed sources: Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds
The seeds are beautiful.
After the pods dry to a tan color, the seeds are ready to harvest. I like to display mine in a jar throughout the winter.
They are a good reminder of the promise of a new spring, and flowers to come.
