i'm guessing that might just be an immature bean that hasn't fully gotten finished.I'm collecting some bean seeds as the pods dry enough, generally when the pods get crinkly. We are in a wet period and I don't want the seeds sprouting in the pod as they tend to do in wet weather so I'm collecting daily. This is Cock 'n Bull, one of the Will Bonsall beans I'm trying to stabilize.
It doesn't happen that often, but in maybe 10% to 15% of the pods I open, I get beans that look like this. All the beans are solid red like they should be except I'll get some that have one light bean. It is always the one on the stem end of the pod. I don't think all these are coming from the same plant but maybe. Has anyone seen anything like this before? I guess it could be a reverse but always at the stem end of the pod?
Next one I open like this I plan on putting all those beans to the side and see what they look like when they totally dry out. I know they will get darker and this one tends to shrivel up a bit as it dries. I just want to see what that light one does compared to the others.

i would love to have a big enough space to have enough light and room to grow beautiful pods like that!I grew some beans in pots in my house about 6 years ago. The pods turn out looking so beautiful being free of any blemishes.
