Blue Speckled Tepary Bean

80 days. Tan and blue-grey spotted beans, unique flavor in traditional Southwestern dishes. Tepary beans were a premier crop in the native cultures of the Sonoran desert and surrounding regions. They are very drought- and heat-tolerant, and in much of the country they may be grown without irrigation. They are of a thin-stemmed sprawling bush to half-runner habit. The seeds are smaller than common beans, produced in staggering profusion in small pods yielding several seeds per pod.

What are the pros? Produces well

What are the cons? None

Review:

I thought these were going to be a bust, but over time, I was amazed at how many dry beans came from them. It seemed to take a long time for them to get going. I planted them on the south side of some okra, thinking to conserve space, but they climbed the okra and weighed it down. As the reviewer below noted, they definitely need a trellis to climb. Next year, they will be planted next to cattle panel trellises, and the okra will be allowed to grow in peace. Also, probably due to crowding on the okra, I found that some sprouted in the shell before they were harvested. It wasn't a big problem, but should be avoided by use of the trellis.

What are the pros? can handle dry sandy soil

What are the cons? beans are small

Review:

I live in Florida which is know for its rain and humidity. But during the spring, when the temperatures are the best for growing most veggies, it's also our dry season. And it can get very dry combined with sandy soils that are not great at holding moisture. These beans have grown without any additional irrigation. It's getting quite hot in the afternoons and the common beans are starting to wilt, but not these.

What are the pros? pest free, heavy producer

What are the cons? needs a trellis or similar

Review:

I direct seeded this in the garden in the spring. The plant grew well in the TX heat and started producing lots of beans in August. It can be difficult growing things in the summer heat here - will be planting this one again. (Also found a wheel bug on this plant. That made me smile.)
