runner bean identification

Michael Ryemill asked 14 years ago

I think I picked up some unusual runner beans at an organic food festival in Bristol last year.I planted the seeds this year and the plants have produced some lovely beans which have a pale green base colour and are mottled with burgundy red squiggles. Do they have a known variety and are they eatable?

There are lots of varieties, some old kinds and heritage varieties. This might be ‘Barlotto Firetongue’ from your description.
