Bean, Jack in the Beanstalk Runner (Phaseolus coccineus var. albus), packet of 3 seeds, organic
Family: Legume (Fabaceae)
Zone 9 to 12, a tuberous-rooted perennial vine. Grown as an annual in Zones 8 and under, 90 days to maturity.
Heirloom that originated in Poland. Flattened pods much like Lima Beans yield large, white, flattened seeds. Vines with extreme vigor to 30 feet. May be grown up a cage like a pole bean, or allowed to sprangle. Large, showy, white flowers give way to beans that are edible in snap stage or dried to use as a soup bean. Cultivation: Very, very fun and a good activity for kids. Germination like a small earthquake. Direct seed in a richly composted hill in the early spring. For seed production get an early start, sowing just after the last frost of spring. Provide trellis or grow on the corn. Will run on the ground if not trellised, but for ease of picking, and a good, dry pod in the end, trellis. Pods are flattened when unripe and when ripe, inflate like crescent moon pillows.
