Phaseolus vulgaris 

This is a beautiful dwarf French bean. They produce compact, high yielding  plants that grew really well for us in 2023. As the name suggests, they are black and white patterned. They can be picked and eaten as green beans but that seems such a shame given the how striking the ripe beans become. French beans do not need much in the way of isolation for seed saving so you can grow and save seed from as many as you like each season
