I'm growing La Vigneronne as a network bean. It's a bean with splashes of red on the pods. Of the four plants I have, one is throwing plain green pods and is more vigorous that the true plants. I wondered whether there are any other reports of this stock of La Vigneronne having crossed or not being stable. I believe you have grown it, heirloomgal. Were yours all red splashed?
I imagine you want seeds only from the red splashed pods, Russ?
I'm not sure which seeds I would want. If there is a difference in seeds from the solid green pods and the red splashed pods. I would take some of both. If there is no difference in seed of each pod type then I'll take seed only from the red splashed pods.
The seed of La Vigneronne comes from a fellow in Tennessee in 2018. It was the first sample I have sent out. It is very possible there was some outcrossed seed in this fellow's seed donation. He does grow a lot of different pole beans each year. I don't think the bean was on my priority list. You must of asked me to pick something for you and since I didn't know the seed year of this donation. I thought I would be good to get at least one sample of the seed grown.
