How can I tell when my Scarlet Runner Beans are ready to be picked, and are they good to eat green off the vine including the shell?

Scarlet Runners, like any large horticultural bean, is best harvested as the beans just begin to form in the pod (before they begin to bulge). You can eat the pods and the beans. Slice before cooking as older pods and beans tend to be tough.
