Ijevan #1 Red Runner Bean
Phaseolus coccineus 'Ijevan Red #1'
Uses: Culinary Duration: Annual
When to Sow: Spring Ease of Germination: Easy
These giant and wonderful beans were being offered by a tiny farm woman on a cold and windy day in the city of Ijevan, Armenia. She had a collection of two varieties of runner beans and was thrilled to the point of estatic laughter when the "strange" foreigner asked for her picture while holding the beans! Runner beans are from Central America originally. The beans were brought back to the Old World by the Spanish and it is a mystery of sorts how they were then spread to such far flung spaces as Armenia and Georgia.
