Half-runner. This bean was one of the original varieties brought by the Spanish as they settled New Mexico. It is still grown by a few Spanish farms to this day, due to its dry bean rich flavor and creamy texture. Better than the Pinto bean, this small, creamy-tan bean cooks fast and is the tastiest part of several centuries of NM history. Vines produce very early.

Review:

I can't give a fair review about the taste because I don't have a single dry pod yet. And it's late September. I thought they were early beans. A little disappointed about it. I live in NY, z5b

Review:

I live in arid zone 4ish were we usually get a last frost the first week in June and a first frost any were from late September to mid October. This year we had until mid October. I planted the Bolita bean the second week in June to harvest as a dry storage bean. There were about 45 beans in the package and I planted them all in a single row, no trellis. They are not a bush variety, but I just let them climb all over each other and they spread out about 3 feet. I lost 5-6 plants to the critters and took out another 2 that were strangling my peppers. Even so I ended up with 10 1/2 pounds of dry beans. I have not cooked any yet, but will comment after I do.
