This past summer my half runners had tough hulls. What causes this? Can I prevent it this year?

We like the smaller half runner. Which of your half runners is smallest?

Beans get tough when they're overmature. Just keep harvesting throughout the season and the plant will continue to produce new pods, plus, the ones you harvest will be tender and tasty.

The White Half Runner matures in 60 days and has tender pods 4 1/2 inches long. They're an excellent choice.
