These beans are called barbounofassoula or hantres in Greek, which means beads.  When these are fresh and green they are called fassolia barbounia (runner beans) Phaseolous Coccineus which are a hybrid of Phaseolous Vulgaris (the common bean)  and when they are ripe their pods become beige and red and inside the beans are off-white with red markings.  However, when cooked they loose this lovely colour.
