Runner Beans - Bendy or Snappy?
« on: August 16, 2019, 07:24 »
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)!

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.
I don't like bananas unless it's raining. (A quote from my great-niece).
