Runner Beans - Bendy or Snappy?

Hi,

To avoid stringy runner beans is best to pick ones that bend or ones that snap?

If they snap in two with a clean break - there's no strings!
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

does it not depend on what type you are growing? :unsure:

Some beans are advertised as stringless but probably aren't if you leave them on too long. Just pick a medium one, snap it in two and see if there's any strings attached to them.
Spring always comes when we sow the seeds of life.
