Get runner bean Red Rum to give you a productive runner bean, which is ready for you to harvest from your vegetable patch as early as August and cropping for a good eight weeks into early autumn. 

One of the great attributes to Red Rum is its ability to set to fruit from flowers without cross-pollination from runner beans nearby. This means that even without a second plant, your one plant gives you long green pods full of tasty, meaty beans which reach 25cm (10in) in length and remain straight for easy picking and then easy preparation in the kitchen.

We recommend you keep harvesting regularly to encourage your runner bean plants to keep producing flowers and fruit giving you an extended cropping period. With RHS Award of Garden Merit for good growing attributes.
