yes. can you open one. is it purple kidney shaped bean inside?

It Is 350 km away. Expecting some seeds soon.

Purple Beans seen in the vegetable section of the Flower Show in January.

I guess Phaseolus vulgaris L.!

Bush bean. I concur with … ID.

Looks different from Phaseolus vulgaris as per images and details herein.
Maybe Mucuna pruriens var. utilis as per images and details herein.

As per Beans for ID : Lalbagh Botanical Gardens, Bangalore : 20JAN20 : AK-25, in this green and purple pods are available, which will give white and black seeds respectively.

I guess it is matching with :Phaseolus vulgaris L

No, …, it looks different.

Neither the leaves nor the pods are matching.

But does not look like Mucuna sp.

Pl. go through details and references at Mucuna pruriens var. utilis

… has posted the same species from Lalbagh at the same time (Jan.2020) at Beans for ID : Lalbagh Botanical Gardens, Bangalore : 20JAN20 : AK-25

Thanks … Frankly, both the Species were new to me.

Was seeing them for the first time.

But both looks completely different. And I am totally confused!

Same here … I do not find any similarity between the two.

On further search, I found it to be some cultivar of Phaseolus vulgaris as per

Thanks … Actually, I had met one Dr Shiv Prasad near the Vegetable Section of the Flower Show.

Although a doctor by profession, he has a Facebook page similar to Indian Flora.
He knew all the names of the beans.
But I can’t recollect that site now.

I should have taken down his contact number.
