One of the most beautiful runner beans on the market, Butlers will grace your garden with a host of scarlet flowers. Although some people use this variety strictly as an ornamental, Butler runner beans are excellent-tasting green beans, providing the summer gardener with abundant, stringless pods.

Description

Butler runner beans are an early, compact (growing to approximately 25cm (10") long) runner bean, with the plants providing a high yield of long, smooth, stringless pods. The seeds themselves are a lovely shade of purple and the scarlet flowers will brighten up any garden or allotment. This variety is also disease resistant a super-easy to grow.

Harvest runs over a long season, and being stringless, they can be eaten when young or a little more mature. Delicious in just about any bean dish, Butlers are traditionally served lightly boiled (great with either butter or oil!) or in bean salads. They’re also a great freezing bean.
