Quote From nativeseeds.org:

Yoeme Purple String Bean This prolific pole bean
from the Pascua Yaqui Tribe of the Southwest U.S. and
northwest Mexico is highly drought-resistant and heat-tolerant.
The plant is a vigorous climber that produces
delicate white flowers. The tasty green beans are ready to
eat in late August and are purple on beige when dried.
