description for "Beans: Phaseolus vulgaris 'State Half Runner'"

This odd named bean variety is full of contradictions. As a bush bean, it has vigorous growing vines. These reach heights of up to 10 feet. However, the runners the vines send out are short, therefore not needing any support. Green pods give way to flavorful white beans with a distinct green bean taste. A favorite in the South and Mid West, it can also be picked early as a snap. When picked mature, it is recommended to seal in an airtight container to preserve flavor. Maturity is 60 days.
