Morrison the supermarket have wonderful looking runner beans for sale. I would like to know if the seeds from these beans will grow "true". Or are these hybrids and so not suitable for saving and growing nexy year?



If they look wonderful they will have been picked before the seeds (the beans inside) were ripe. They won't ripen properly off the plant, so there's no point in buying some and saving the seeds. They won't germinate.
