Scarlet Runner Beans
Scarlet Runner Beans look a lot like pinto or pink beans, but they are much prettier. Hearty, mild and colorful, they are very versatile and complementary to other flavors.
- Mottled dark red to purple and black
- Approximately 3/4 to 1-1/2 inches in length
Vigorous Scarlet Runner Bean plants twine into showy full-leafed 10 to12 foot vines as quickly as Jack’s beanstalks. They are soon covered with sprays of brilliant scarlet blossoms that attract hungry hummingbirds. Flowers are followed by wide, meaty edible pods. Left on the vines, the fat pods swell with fascinating big black and purple swirled “magic beans” to treasure (or cook up), or save and plant for another summer’s fairy tale garden. Source:

In Mexico, scarlet runner beans are known as “ayocote beans,” and are often served in a deeply flavorful chile sauce – their meatiness offering the perfect complement to the sauce’s richness. Try this bean-and-chile mixture as a vegetarian taco filling, or spoon it over rice for a completely vegetarian dish.
