1500 Year Old Cave Bean

         
 
7 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? 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.

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.
