That's interesting, the speckled patterns, especially on the more pronouncedy marked ones are absolutely those of scarlet runner beans, but the bean shape is more like that of ...say... cranberry beans. :?:

Looking at the flowers, I'd say scarlet runners too.

they also said they were a bean that was handed down by the natives in our area? don't know how true that is but that was his story.
