Half-runner beans have a loyal following in Appalachia. Although stringy, these beans are usually prolific and preferred to be used in making leather britches after removing the strings, which was originally a tradition of Native peoples.

Selected for its tenderness and flavor by the respected seed saver Dr. Bill Best, NT Half-runner is stringless and an overwhelmingly productive bean. Plump pods are tender even when they are full with seeds. Non-tough Half-runner is a multi-purpose bean. It is great as a fresh bean as well as for canning and to make leather britches. Plants need trellising but they won’t stretch as much as some other pole beans do.

Our seed crop was grown by the talented farmers of New Roots Community Farm, located in Fayetteville, WV.

Packet has 25 seeds

    I was very pleased with these seeds. The beans were tender even when picked full.

    I would ordinally give a rating of five however our summer was really hot and dry this year. My beans did not produce like in years past.
