Hi. Our runner beans are at the end of their season and there are large beans inside the pods (they look like Barlotti beans). What are these called and are they edible on their own.



You can eat them , but they'd be very tough-skinned! Some people leave the last 'pods' to dry out, and then harvest the beans to sow next season.
