A real advance, which makes growing runner beans so much easier. Firelight is almost self-fertile, which gives improved pod-set (often a problem) and considerably higher yields than older types. The stringless pods are full of flavour, and are produced in abundance even in hot, dry summers. We know you will be impressed by this British-bred, scarlet-flowered runner.
