Runner beans are long, twining perennial vines that are usually grown as annuals for their showy flowers and their edible pods and seeds. The leaves are trifoliate and each leaflet is broad-oval. The flowers in most cultivars are bright scarlet red. Runner beans are more popular as food in Europe. The immature pods are used like green beans. The flowers are delicious as salads. The seeds in the shell stage are good to eat, but the mature beans are dry and mealy and are not generally consumed.
