  1. Hello,
    I am trying to find the early half runner green beans for eating and freezing. Bought some at Krogers and though they were not the best
    they still tasted good but I’m looking for fresher half runner beans. If I am not mistaken these are by far the earliest green beans.
    I am nearest the Knoxville, Kingston Pike Farmers Markets.
    Any comments or suggestions, please?

    Thank you.

    • Hi Pat! I will push your query out to the farmers for a response. Stay tuned!

      Hello Pat,
      Most of what you see in the grocery stores have been shipped from warmer climates so they are available to the consumer earlier then from around East Tenn. But to get the full flavor of the bean it should be picked & sold quickly! That’s why those beans you got didn’t have the flavor you wanted.
      White 1/2 runner beans take just as long to grow as any other pole beans. Just a few days difference so I recommend to be patient, for we have to depend on the E.Tenn. weather to cooperate. We are planning on having a Tenn. 1/2 runner bean but as stated before it will be taking some time to get to the market.
      Keep checking with the FARM Market site to see when they start coming in and look for other great varieties of bush beans that I know will be coming a little before the 1/2 runner & other pole beans!
      Hope this helps!
