Right, you sent me Ocean View seeds and I have grown this bean in the 2020 and 2021 seasons. In 2022 I will have it too. I choose the bluest seeds for sowing.
Ocean View 2020

This variety is not quite stable, there were new segregations every time. This year I sowed seeds that look like blue Dapple Grey. I would love to stabilize this pattern.

my adventures with Dapple Grey giving me what i've been calling Monster beans and then planting Monster beans and getting back Dapple Grey and also many other beans.
it can be fun, addictive and very hard to manage all the variants that can show up. i have beans that look like Ocean View in a variety of colors from grays, browns, tans, reds, oranges, yellows, light greens, olives, etc. i also have gotten a pink version of Dapple Grey which i have no idea will repeat or be stable until it gets grown out again. i have to pick a few of these each year to see what happens next.
