An evolution of Adaptive Seeds' British Pop Runner Bean mix. The vines reach about 7 to 8 feet, and can produce some lengthy pods, up to 13 inches long. Leaves are either dark green or a somewhat translucent chartreuse. Flowers come in several combinations of both solid and bicolour blooms of red, white, and salmon. A great multi-purpose bean, these are excellent as a snap, fresh shelled, or dry bean. I like the fresh whole pods best. They have an amazing sweet flavour with a crisp-crunchy texture that holds up well to cooking.

The first year I grew these fine beans I added Golden Sunshine to the mix to impart a two-toned effect to the foliage, which has continued fairly consistently in subsequent generations. The seeds have developed more colours than I started with, but my first seed crop looked pretty much exactly like the original seed sample I planted - a collection of black, white, and speckled lavender seeds. In the second year a few plants produced a combination of brown, cream, and grey seeds in various solid and speckled colour configurations that made me think of chocolates. I planted these separately in year three. The resulting crop was a fairly even mix of the original colours with the new chocolate combos, plus a couple of subtle new colours - extremely dark brown and extremely dark blue, which are easy to mistake for black. I'm hoping to find some lighter versions of these super dark seed colours in future generations.

First released in 2023.
