Runner Bean Seeds - Tenderstar

Phaseolus coccineus

Tenderstar has to be tasted to be believed – its flavour and tenderness are exceptional. Plants bear a profusion of attractive pink-and-red blooms, and masses of 18-20cm (7-8”) long pods are freely produced throughout the summer whatever the weather. The short fleshy pods make preparation for cooking exceptionally easy – just top, tail and steam or lightly boil.

Crops 12-16 weeks from sowing. Tasty, nutritious and easy to grow! Try varieties with different flower colours for a ‘wall of colour’. Recent research suggests that evening watering of the roots increases pod set and subsequent cropping. Sow under cover in April for early crops, planting out in late May. For early crops sown outdoors, protect with fleece or cloches to warm the soil and protect the young plants. For tall types in rows, sow outside 5–7.5cm (2–3") deep, spacing seeds 15cm (6") apart in double rows 45cm (18") apart. Allow a further 1.5m (5') between double rows. (Alternatively if space is limited, sow in circles and grow up canes in a ‘wigwam’ format.) Insert long cane supports or netting soon after germination/planting. Plants will reach a height of 1.8–2.1m (6–7').

HEALTH BENEFITS: Good levels of vitamin C, folate and iron together with fibre. COOKING HINTS: Steam or boil for less than 3 minutes to preserve vitamins.
