Mountaineer White Half Runner Bean
60 days. Said to have originated by German settlers of the Dutch Fork section of South Carolina, only 60 miles from our offices. Runs only about 3 ft., so staking is not required. Halfway between bush beans and pole beans, half runners can be used as a snap, shell or dry bean. Particularly popular in the South, but early enough to be enjoyed in the North. Tender pods, 4 to 4 ½-in. long, have wonderful sweet, beany flavor. High yielding if regularly picked. White seeded.
