1500 Year Old Cave Bean

         
 
9 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.

What are the pros? Nothing at this time

What are the cons? Did not produce

Review:

The germination rate was 100%, the plants were beautiful dark green, with large leaves and the vines quickly grew to about 3-feet and stopped growing. For two months these plants took up space, water, and my time to care for them and then this week they died back without ever producing any beans, or even a blossom. They were grown in the same way as my green beans beans which are thriving. It could be that they are just not good in my West Texas climate. I am undecided about trying this variety again.

What are the pros? Very easy to grow

What are the cons? Late bloomers

Review:

I live in northern Illinois and planted very late in early June. These plants took their time growing, but once they got started- there was no stopping them. They didnt bloom until August and were ready to pick late September. I would recommend these beans!

What are the pros? Flavorful

What are the cons? Late start

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.
