1500 Year Old Cave Bean

         
 
6 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
The amazing native bean believed to have been found in a clay pot sealed with pitch in a cave in New Mexico. When carbon dated, the tests showed it to be 1500 years old! Long vines climb to 10’ and produce tasty pods. Beans are large and kidney-shaped, white with maroon mottling. A very rare collector’s bean.

Review:

I didn't think they were going to produce. They were all vines. Huge. I planted them late , my fault. Then in late August there were beans every where. I think they would have produced a lot more if it had not froze.

Great bean, very easy to grow. Not much bothered it. I planted 2 packets and got over 3 qts of dried beans plus plenty for planting next year. Cannot wait to grow again.

Due to the wet spring in our area we got a late start with these beans. Today I got my first real piccking of them and got about 2 gallons from an 8 ft. row. Will order more seeds and plant again.

Review:

I am at the VA/NC border and we had a very wet spring. My beans got a late start but are now blooming very well. I picked some to cook as green beans and they are very good. My beans do have color which I think develops more after they get dry. I will diffently plant again.

Review:

I planted these seeds in May in Virginia and didn't see a single blossom until August - no beans until September. Was expecting a much earlier crop and almost pulled them out due to zero blossoms. The beans are tasty but mine do not have the same mottled seed inside as planted so I question the 'heirloom' label. If you can wait 90 days, good bean. But now the daylight is less and the plants seem to be coming to their end. Small crop, disappointing really but could be due to weather/heat since other beans didn't do well this year either. Last year it was cucumbers, this year the beans. I will give these another try. I would only recommend these for others to give it a go knowing many things can cause a crop to low yield.
