Description

Variety "Hopi Pole," showing a couple of variable seed features common in Phaseolus:

-When first shelled/not 100% dry, many seeds will look white instead of their true, final color. In the first photo the one white seed will dry down and become brilliant orange like the others.

-In patterned seeds, it's pretty common for the pattern to "reverse," so a plant that's primarily orange beans with red speckles will make a few red beans with orange speckles. Usually this seems to be on a pod-by-pod basis, but sometimes it's in the same pod, like in the second photo. I've somewhere seen this reversal also called "day for night."
