Description
The first completely self fertile scarlet-flowered runner bean! Runner Bean 'Firestorm' produces stringless beans which are slightly thicker, sweeter and more tender than other varieties. This superb runner bean will even set in high temperatures or poor weather, so you can be sure of good crops throughout the summer. With its excellent garden performance and attractive scarlet flowers it no wonder that this variety was given a Gardening Which Award. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 30cm (12").

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Companion planting: Try growing runner beans with sweet peas to attract pollinating insects to the flowers, and Nasturtiums to draw aphids away from your crop.

More Info
When growing runner beans provide a thick mulch of organic matter around the base of the plants to help conserve moisture and reduce weed growth. Water runner beans regularly, particularly as the flowers develop, and provide a liquid feed every 14 days during mid-summer. Pinch out the tips of the beans when they reach the top of their supports. Beans can be harvested from July onwards. Pick the beans regularly and a little on the young side to ensure top quality and prolonged cropping. Culinary note: Suitable for freezing. Caution: Cook runner beans before eating to avoid discomfort.
