(Anasazi Cave Bean, Pole Beans, Aztec Bean, New Mexico Cave Beans, Appaloosa) The story goes that this strain of beans were discovered in a ceramic pot sealed with tree resin in an Anasazi cave, making this a 1,500 year old cultivar. The beans grew, turning out to be a vigorous pole bean that makes flattened green beans that may be steamed to make an awesome dish. If allowed to mature and dry, the beans that result may be soaked overnight and slow-cooked the next day to make an incomperable chili dish. The beans taste sweet and creamy (like a Pinto Bean) and cook to a smooth texture. They cook a bit more rapidly than modern dry beans, and they are less gassy.
