Organic Scarlet Emperor Pole Bean
72 days to snap, 100 days to dry bean harvest | Phaseolus coccineus
HEIRLOOM I’ve loved Scarlet Emperor beans since childhood, watching hummingbirds zoom through the branches and monarchs float through the glowing crimson flowers. The heart-shaped foliage grows 10’ tall and higher, quickly becoming a tower of gorgeous scarlet flowers. The pods are massive and super sweet as well, often growing over a foot long before becoming fibrous. If you miss their delicious snap bean stage, their shelling beans are large and luscious and finally their huge seeds — gorgeously raspberry with black streaks — are delectable as rich, creamy dry beans to enjoy all winter. If you’re wondering if Scarlet Emperor beans will thrive in containers, they do! The larger the pot and the richer the soil the taller and more blooms they’ll grow.
