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? can handle dry sandy soil
What are the cons? beans are small
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
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.)
