Bean, Anasazi Cave Pole Beans (Phaseolus vulgaris), packet of 10 seeds, organic

(1 customer review)


Family:  Legume (Fabaceae)

Annual. 55 days to green beans, 90 days to dry beans.

(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.

    Abundance of beans


    This is my first time growing beans and these did great. They grew lush and tall all summer and finally flowered and have been producing lots of beans in Sept. (zone 8b). I will definitely plant these again. Photo: pole beans are the flat ones towards the back
