Firestorm Runner Bean Seeds
Firestorm runner beans are both beautiful and incredibly easy to grow. Because they’re self-pollinating (they don’t rely on bees or other insects for pollination), they set pods even during the most inclement of weather.
The beans themselves are stringless and sweet, and some find them to be tenderer than other varieties of runner beans. If you’re looking for both beauty and taste, Firestorm might be the choice for you: they have all the beauty of a classic runner bean, and yet are graced with the more succulent texture more commonly associated with French beans.
