This might be the largest bean out there. The seeds are huge, about two to three times the size of a regular runner bean. The vines are big too, up to 12 feet long with solid red flowers that are very popular with hummingbirds. Pods produce two to six black speckled lavender seeds. You can use the pods fresh, but I think these really stand out as a dry bean because the size is such a novelty. Really impressive in chili or soups where it will dwarf every other bean in the pot. They mature a little on the late side in my region, so I'm selecting for earliness in an attempt to increase the amount of pods that dry down on the plant before frost.
