  • Bean, White Half Runner is rated 4.5385 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only bean to grow for canning. a five I am 67 years old & having been growing half runners since I was 13. Stringing is part of bean prep for canning or cooking. Have never & will never grow another type bean. So good during the winter holidays & all winter long. Great flavor, tender & just a great bean. If the strings bother you should probably not be growing a garden. All preferred bean of my father & all of my grandparents.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Beans! I planted these last year for the first time. I remember them from Kentucky when my parents planted them. I was simply amazed at how bountiful only a few seeds were. Besides being great fresh green beans, they also make great shucky beans! I saw someone else had complained about the strings, but I'm used to stringing beans before you cook them so that was no problem at all. So tender! Love them!!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not impressed! I grew these last year and I will NOT be growing them again. They do have decent flavor, IF you can get past all the strings! So stringy! I'm not sure why they are rated so highly, I do not agree.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very productive bean! This is our first year growing this variety. As suggested by other reviewers, we grew these on a trellis. The germination rate was near 100% and the plant grew quickly. Almost overnight, tons of beans appeared and took just a couple of days to reach 4-6" long. The beans have a nice, old-fashioned flavor and are about as thick as a pencil. The plants are definitely climbers - the runners are 5 feet off the ground already. After a couple of pickings, there are literally hundreds and hundreds of blossoms in our 30ft row. Will definitely grow these again next year.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very tasty Was very happy with this bean; will grow it again next year. I put it on Burpee's pole bean and pea tower, which is about 6', but this bean wanted to be much taller than that! Was very happy with yield and flavor. The young pods are sweet enough to munch on raw in the garden.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I dont like them Not sure why these have such a good rating. I think they're tough and stringy. I dont like them at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Family favorite My Grandmother grew this bean in Salyersville Ky. I grew up eating this great tasting bean. Now I've been growing it up here in Ohio for a few years. Sense I got interested in growing some of my own food. It freezes and cans really well. I always share them with my Mom and she just loves them. She cooks them up with some bacon. Yum!! I just broad cast them in my raised bed and poke them into the dirt with the help of some grand children then I let them grow with no support. They climb all over each other and do really well this way.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bean, but does need staked We purchased and succesfully grew around 150-200 plants with a portion of 1/2 lb. seeds, and this is my wife's favorite bean, but the idea that these do not have to be staked is pretty insane! Seriously, our plants grew to heights of 5' to 8'. Staking is done very neatly with stout poles on each end of row, taut line run around 7' above with garden twin drop lines hanging down to within 3" to 5" above the ground.
