  Runner bean - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The runner bean (Phaseolus coccineus, Fabaceae) is often called the scarlet runner bean since most varieties have red flowers and multicolored seeds, though some have white flowers and white seeds.
It differs from the common bean in several respects: the cotyledons stay in the ground during germination, and the plant is a perennial with tuberous roots (though it is usually treated as an annual).
Runner beans are best sliced using a small tool which also removes the sides (the strings) on varieties that have them.
