Default anyone growing poverina pole bean?

i am growing poverina, seeds from sandhill preservation.

sandhills description says long green bean, vigorous growth. i may haver some crossed seed. most of the beans are round green beans speckled with purple. some beans are long, others are shorter, and smaller. one plant has long flat roma type beans speckled with purple. it tastes pretty good right from the vine, so not complaining. one other vine is giving me large round green beans about the same size as the larger speckled beans.
i have marengo growing on one side, and mr tung growing on the other side of poverina, so i am not confusing it with something else. they are different looking beans.

thoughts?

i sent sandhill an e-mail, and glenn has responded.

poverina should be green with mottled purple which is what i suspected.
the romano seeds may have been off seeds that fell though holes in his drying screens.
he had only grown it once, and it was next to a cowpea, so no chance of crossing on his end. the all green bean could be an off type that heirlooms sometimes show.

Send a few samples of the pure seed, and the possible crosses, my way.

i'll try.

problem here is i am running out of summer. pole beans took awhile to get going due to weather. the closer we get to october, frost can occur at any time. right now, beans are at the green shelly stage. i need a few more weeks of fair weather for seed saving.
