Thank you, Mike, for replying to my query. We don't know anymore than they are called 'runner beans' in the supermarkets and fruit & veg shops in the UK. We will be there again next year and I will endeavour to find out more. Regards Faye

Ask the supermarket or F&V shop owners what variety they are and then check the seed selling companies. Or take a photo of them and compare to beans on the net.

This is the heading at the top of this page. "Growing Beans - climbing, also Pole beans, Runner beans, Scarlet Runners". Most vegetables have several names - different countries call them different names. You would not be able to import them - quarantine rules. Go to the web sites I suggested and pick a variety or two and try growing them.
