Ask a Question forum: Green bean warts?

My bush green beans have started showing these warts. The plant itself looks good, no obvious signs of disease or pests. If I crack the bean open near the warts I don't see anything unusual inside. I'm not sure if this is anything I should be worried about or just go ahead and eat them... Any ideas?

I see that no one has offered an answer yet. I will try.
It could be nothing, or it could be the beginning stage of a disease such as rust.

It's a good idea to include more information, such as how the plants are being grown, what is your watering schedule, do you water at the base of the plant or do overhead watering wetting the leaves? Have you had a lot of rainfall lately? Things like that could spark a good answer.

Also, photos of the foliage, stems and the entire plant might help to get better answers.

Here is a link which shows some bean diseases.

Sorry I could not be of more help.

I grow quite a few beans every year but have never seen that before, at least not that I recall. It kind of strikes me as some sort of insect damage, but that's just a guess. Maybe contact your county Extension Service for assistance?

I thought it might be insects too.
Between the kudzu bugs and the leaf foot bugs (at my house), it's difficult to get any unblemished beans at all.

I was wondering if its just those little bumps that always show up on green beans. At least at my house.
