Sources and commentaries

Runner beans are the immature pods of green beans of flat section, before the development of seeds. The name is usually at the plural form. Names such as Scnittbohne and snijboon indicate that they are cut with a knife before cooking, in contrast with French bean, which is usually broken by hand. Although there are also flat runner beans with a yellow colour, no name seems to distinguish them. Runner beans are not distinguished from French beans in all countries. MC
