The runner bean 'Prize Winner' is a very productive high-yield bean variety that produces long and fleshy pods. The seeds are beautiful purple-red with black speckles.

Particularly noteworthy are the flowers of the runner beans. Bright flower clusters that range from delicate white to fiery red make them a true eye candy. It can often be found as a decorative element or a visual screen on fences, railings and balconies.

Package with approx. 20 runner bean seeds

Growing instructions

Sow outdoors from the end of April. Beans are often sown in clusters of five to six seeds together in a planting hole, keeping a distance of about 40 cm between clusters. Row spacing approx 100 cm. The beans should be buried more than 2 cm deep. Seeds of legumes often germinate better if they are pre-soaked in water for a few hours. Runner beans are climbing plants and need a climbing aid or trellis. Suitable rods or cords should be completed and already installed prior to sowing.
Beans are most comfortable at temperatures between 18 and 25 °C. They prefer a sunny, sheltered location and deep humus-rich soil. When the plants have grown about 20 cm high, earthing up is highly recommended.
