I planted about 6 of these bean seeds early this year, and the vines have grown to gargantuen proportions, quickly topping the 6ft fence and flopping over the neighbors side down to their grass..

they have long pods, about 5-7 inches, 3-4 inch leaves and when dry, the beans are a lovely light red shade.

they came from an unmarked packet that I had in my seed storage.. I thought if I grew them, I would figure out what they were, but no luck??Thumb of 2012-09-09/cherissefaulkne/c6af5f

Can't say for sure but they remind me of my Romano pole beans.
