Scarlet Runner Beans

Runner beans are a bit different from regular green beans. They are juicier, sweeter, and have a richer flavor. They have fine hairs on the outside of the pod, which are barely noticeable when young, but can be slightly unpleasant on older beans. They are delicious eaten raw, but they really shine when cooked. Most beans lose some of their flavor when cooked, but runner beans retain their flavor even after being cooked.
