General question here....
I've always heard that when you cross pollinate things like squash, it isn't visible until the seeds from that crop are planted themselves.
Reason I'm asking is that I just picked a bunch of bush beans that most certainly were NOT Dragon Tongue beans, yet showed some of the coloration on the outside of the bean as well as on the bean seeds as well.
I know they were not Dragon Tongue because they were planted about 3 weeks after the Dragon Tongue beans, are in a different bed (although located within 10 feet), and I used all of the DT beans when I planted them the first time.
It was just darn odd, I tell you, which prompts the question do bean crosses present themselves in the same generation?
