Help with id'ing this large purple podded bean?
This bean climbs about 6 feet tall - probably would have grown higher if I had supported it further. It produced a ton of large purple and green striped pods, which, when dried bore pinto-looking beans with black markings and a slight 'rosy' blush over white. I will go further to say they lost the purple color when boiled, and the shelly beans are very much like a pinto. Any ideas?
The reason is I have lost track - what I thought was planted here 'tennessee greasy beans' are definitely not these. I can't remember planting anything else there. The original beans planted there were small and dark brown - so I think I've got an interloper?
