An albino bean?

Imagine our surprise when we found this white bean plant among our row of scarlet runner beans.  Could this be an albino bean plant?

The seeds were harvested from last year's crop of scarlet runner beans - all of which were green.

Can this plant survive without chlorophyll and all that photosynthesis stuff?  How will it get it's energy?

Let's see what happens.
