Cultivation & harvest

The ideal growing conditions for pole beans consist of a warm, sunny location protected from the wind and a humus-rich, deep soil.


Runner beans are very versatile in the kitchen for soups, salads or as a side dish.


Fresh runner beans can be stored in the refrigerator for up to three days. However, it is best to eat them directly fresh, as they quickly lose their crunchiness. The dried seeds can be stored in a cool and dark place for at least a year.
