This is my first season of purposefully growing beans to shell and dry.
I've let the last of the scarlet runner beans mature, I had some last year and they were delicious.
What I'm really looking forward to are 'George's beans': big, fat, white things like enormous cannelini beans, but they're runners. The pods are at least 30cm long and I admire them daily!
Does anyone in a temperate climate have a named (but no 'Georges' please...) bean that they find especially tasty and productive? I'm going to get serious about drying beans next season.
